Live Chat: “Faith and Doubt at Ground Zero” 10 Years Later
September 7, 2011, 11:14 pm ET
10 years after 9/11, what’s it like to look back on “Faith and Doubt at Ground Zero?”
The film captures the raw emotions and spiritual aftershocks that surfaced in the aftermath of that horrific day. It’s a powerful meditation on the search for meaning in the face of unspeakable terror.
So, what have we gained — and lost — from the passage of time? Have that day’s spiritual implications and symbolic meaning changed in the tumultuous ten years that followed?
We asked two people who play big parts in the film, Marian Fontana and Rabbi Brad Hirschfield, to come by for a live chat to reflect on the film and the difficult issues it raises, 10 years later.
What questions do you have for Marian Fontana and Rabbi Hirschfield? Submit them in the chat box below anytime, and join us at 1pm for the live chat.
Marian Fontana has been a writer and performer for the past 20 years. After losing her husband on Sept. 11, 2001, Marian became a political activist, founding the September 11th Families Association which has advocated for firefighters and the 9/11 victims’ families.
Rabbi Brad Hirschfield is an acclaimed author, lecturer, rabbi and commentator.
Donald W. Shriver Jr., president emeritus of the Union Theological Seminary, will be joining us as a guest questioner.
