As we seek meaning and connection in our lives, the concept of “spirituality” can serve as a defining element of that search. But the term itself defies definition. Over 100 years ago, Ethical Culture founder Felix Adler offered a way of looking at spirituality that can help us bring alive the ideal of one’s interconnectedness with the web of life. Can it serve as a guide for today?

Jane Jacobs called it a ballet. It was a soaring, stimulating, and safe place. Neighborhoods had density. Buildings had character. Streets had eyes. By the 1960’s, urban planning had changed. Led by Robert Moses, the ballet of the City would come to a grinding halt. It was replaced by the superblock, the highrise and the highway. The wrecking ball sealed the fate of neighborhoods. What implications did this have on life in New York and how do those fateful decisions still impact us today?
