Commonwealth Club, 555 Post St., San Francisco
"Jewish Justices of the Supreme Court from Brandeis to Kagan"
Join us to hear Rabbi David Dalin, MA'76, PhD'77, P'11
, speak about his new book, "Jewish Justices of the Supreme Court from Brandeis to Kagan," at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco. After the event, we welcome you to a Brandeis gathering with David and fellow alumni.
David will cover the lives, legal careers, judicial legacies and Jewish background of the eight Jews who have served or who currently serve as justices of the U.S. Supreme Court: Louis D. Brandeis, Benjamin N. Cardozo, Felix Frankfurter, Arthur Goldberg, Abe Fortas, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen G. Breyer and Elena Kagan. He will also discuss how Woodrow Wilson's historic appointment of Brandeis in 1916 began the tradition of a "Jewish seat" on the Supreme Court, and the role that anti-semitism played in these eight justices' legal careers and Senate confirmation hearings.
