On the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and as we prepare for the high holy day of Yom Kippur, Donniel Hartman, Yossi Klein Halevi, and Elana Stein Hain take stock of how American and Israeli culture have been shaped by the tragedy of that day in 2001 and the wars that followed, and discuss what it might mean to chart a new path forward after America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.
