Neveh Shalom Emeriti Program: Fall Morning Study with Rabbis Isaak & Stampfer…
Morning Study with Rabbi Isaak
“Jewish Justices of the Supreme Court”
Thursdays, 10:00-10:50am, Beginning Oct. 19
A president may serve in office a maximum of eight years, but a justice of the Supreme Court serves for life. Beginning with President Wilson’s choice of Louis Brandeis in 1916, eight Jews have worn the robes of the highest court in the land. Three of them amazingly constitute one third of the court today. Who were/are these scholars of the law? How did they rise to these positions of extreme prominence? Did their nominations face anti-Semitism? How have the decisions of Brandeis, Cardozo, Frankfurter, Goldberg, Fortas, Ginsburg, Breyer and Kagan impacted the life of the nation? We will read “Jewish Justices of the Supreme Court”, a study newly published this year, written by David Dalin, an historian and childhood friend. Register in advance at the CNS office so that participants can receive the books @$35 prior to the first class.
