The Eight Jewish Justices of the Supreme Court: Their Lives and Legacies

There have been over one hundred sitting Supreme Court Justices in our history, eight of whom have been Jewish. In this four-part series, participants will learn about each one, from Justice Louis Brandeis appointed in 1916 to Justice Elana Kagan appointed in 2010. Discussion topics will also include stories and histories about their lives, their paths to court, legal influence and important cases.

Facilitated by: Judge Judy Barzilay

Judge Barzilay was appointed to the federal bench by President Bill Clinton in 1998 and spent 18 years as a judge on the US Court of International Trade in New York. She also sat by designation of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court on several US Appellate Courts and at trials for the Southern District of New York in cases of general federal jurisprudence. She has written and published over 200 judicial opinions on multiple topics. After her service on the bench, Judge Barzilay joined the faculty of the law school at William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA where she taught for 5 years. She holds a BA in English and Education from Wichita State University and holds a Master's Degree and Juris Doctorate from Rutgers University.  She and her husband, Doron, live in Dedham, MA and Sarasota, FL.
