This chapter describes how the antiwar movement continued to consume Heschel's time: the proposed book on Israel had to wait. The second CALCAV national mobilization was scheduled for 5–6 February 1968 in Washington, D.C., and the FBI domestic intelligence division carefully monitored the preparations, although the details were readily available: Martin Luther King had announced them at a press conference in New York City on 12 January. In addition, CALCAV had sent out a registration flyer for the mobilization, which tallied horrifying statistics. The following day, Heschel met with protesters at the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism in Washington, D.C., right before the mobilization. He was featured along with Rabbis Maurice Eisendrath, the Reform movement's president, and Balfour Brickner.
