900 Attorneys and Judges attended the 12th Annual Jewish Law Symposium on Thursday September 13th at the Birchwood Manor, in Whippany. The Symposium featured a panel discussion entitled “Addressing Harassment- Moral Dilemmas in Today’s Transparent World”.
Highlighting the event was New Jersey Supreme Court Justice (ret.) Justice Virginia Long, who was introduced by New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Jaynee LaVecchia.
Rabbi Shalom Lubin, Founder of the Jewish Law Symposium and Chabad of SE Morris County moderated a panel discussion featuring: Rosemarie Alito Esq., Neil Mullin Esq., Karen J. Kessler, and scholar Rabbi Shlomo Yaffe.
“The laws and ethics of the Talmud have served as a cornerstone of humanity’s civil and moral infrastructure, while shaping its’ legal judicial systems,” said Rabbi Lubin.
“This year the news has unfortunately been saturated with so many high profile cases of Harassment, and during the High Holiday season, it’s most appropriate to be reflecting on the proper ways to address and respond to these stories. The topic was hotly debated both from legal and moral angles, through the lens of the Talmud and 2,000 years of Jewish ethics and wisdom.
“I find this program to be intellectually stimulating and fascinating; I love attending every year! If you come to the Jewish Law Symposium, you will walk away with a body of knowledge you will never forget!” said Event Chair Cary B. Cheifetz, of Ceconi & Cheifetz, LLC.
