Jews on the Supreme Court

October 8 @ 11:00 am - November 5 @ 11:30 pm

Louis Brandeis’ 1918 appointment to the Supreme Court began a consistent Jewish presence in this esteemed arena. The four-session class will explore the biographies and tenures of the eight Jews who have been appointed to the high court.
Popular teacher Barry Feldman will lead discussions of the presidential and political considerations in nominations and confirmations. Over four sessions, you will explore the Justices’ innovation, advocacy, and interpretation of the law, from the New Deal to same-sex marriage. Barry Feldman is an educator, urban historian, and licensed New York City tour guide. He leads tours for the Museum at Eldridge Street and the Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy.
