The Clock of the Long Now

By Shari Cohen

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, 2001

The author describes Stewart Brand's project, a 10,000-year clock to ring once every century, devoted to extending time horizons in a period of speed and short-term memory. She suggests that it offers a challenge to Jews to think about how and whether our tradition offers resources for mustering the collective will for taking the long view of the future, in a world that is desperately in need of long term thinking.
