Looking Back, Years Later

Where Were You On September 11?
When we ask or answer, “Where were you on September 11,” we shouldn’t limit the question to our geographical location. Because for all of us, it was so much more than that. Where were you? Where was I? Where were we? And more importantly, where are we?
Does it take courage to be a terrorist?
What makes the 9/11 hijackers terrorists and us heroes?
The question is without a doubt the most burning one of our era: If we cannot be heroes, if we have nothing for which to stand, nothing in which to believe, then the barbarian hordes are at the gates of Rome and its only a matter of time...
The Towers of Light
Like many great feats, the towers didn’t go up easily. It was the culmination of decades of political wrangling and years of laborious construction.

Ground Zero Chaplain Speaks
In advance of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the so-called “Chaplain of Ground Zero,” Col. Jacob Z. Goldstein spoke of his memories in the aftermath of the collapse of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center with a crew from Jewish.TV.
E Pluribus Unum
Out of Many, One
Ten years have passed since that fateful time and many are asking: where did that spirit of camaraderie go? Instead of a growing sense of unity, the past decade has seen our country become increasingly fragmented and polarized. What happened to the outpouring of solidarity and the heightened sense of patriotism that reigned strong immediately following 9/11?
Years later, we look back at the 9/11 terror attacks and ask what we have learned as Jews, as Americans and as people.
