Civil Liberties and Terrorism: Privacy Rights and Protecting Society from External Threats

By Marla J. Feldman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2006

A conversation has been brewing within the American Jewish community about how to balance our historic support for civil liberties with our growing awareness of the risks of terrorism. She asks, How much privacy are we willing to give up in exchange for a greater feeling of security? The author compares Jewish and American criminal and civil law as it relates to this question.
