Balancing Openness and Vigilance

By Shari Cohen

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, June 7, 2002

The author finds a major challenge in post-September 11 America: a need for greater vigilance toward terrorism and other emerging threats while maintaining the openness that is the country's strength and potential best hope for the future. She finds that the Sabbath, with a set of practices that stimulates the imagination, can offer insights and inform the political process.
