dc.description.abstractIn the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center, Americans sought to understand how threats from afar would alter everyday life within the boundaries of the nation. As they mourned and made sense of the tragedy, some turned to a comparison in order to give the moment its full weight. Chicago Rabbi Gary Gerson, who played a public role on television and in newspapers, attempted to help people cope with fear and death: “Humanity came apart in lower Manhattan today, and each of us is wounded. We mourn the loss of our innocence. . . . Terror has struck us, but it will not destroy us. Now we are all Israelis.”en_US
