Jewish Lawyers Guild induction at The Angel Orensanz Foundation

The Jewish Lawyers Guild is an organization of lawyers and jurists founded in 1962 upon fellowship and faith in tradition. As the organization grew, it began hosting an annual dinner, where it confers awards to jurists who exemplify the qualities of Benjamin N. Cardozo and Golda Meir. Guild activities include lectures and programs throughout the year that are of interest to the legal and Jewish communities, including an annual program in remembrance of the Holocaust. The Guild also hosts an annual Chanukah Party, where gifts are donated and later distributed by members to children who are hospitalized with serious and often life-threatening diseases or conditions. The Guild also funds two scholarships at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.
This event was held at the beautiful Angel Orensanz Foundation in New York City. The evening also featured the artwork of artist Steven Colucci.
