The Balcony, December 2004

By Ruth Calderon

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2004

Calderon shares her perceptions of Jewish life in America from A to Z. In this issue, on letters E and F, she writes about expressions - the stock phrases that make up so much of all conversations - and the preponderance of flags in American life. At first, she wondered if this signified a lack of confidence in American nationalism, but later came to a different understanding of American patriotism and how it coexists with independent cultural identities in positive and non-threatening ways.
