500 attorneys and judges packed The Hanover Marriott Whippany, NJ to attend the 5th Annual Jewish Law Symposium led by Shliach Shalom Lubin.

On Wednesday September 14th, an overflow crowd of 500 attorneys and judges packed The Hanover Marriott Whippany, NJ to attend Chabad of SE Morris County’s 5th Annual Jewish Law Symposium.

Randy Cohen, Producer of “A Question of Ethics” and former columnist of the New York Times Magazine’s The Ethicist column moderated the lively discussion along with featured panelists: Honorable Virginia A. Long , Associate Justice , New Jersey Supreme Court, Justin P. Walder Esq. , Senior Partner at the firm Walder Hayden & Brogan, and Rabbi Professor Michael J. Broyde, Professor of Law At Emory University School of Law.

The program was opened by Harold P. Braff Esq. of Margulies Wind & Herrington, and opening remarks were made by Rabbi Shalom Lubin, founder of the Jewish Law Symposium, and Director of Chabad of SE Morris County, based in Madison, NJ.

The symposium was attended by attorneys and judges from all faiths and walks of life, and NY, NJ, and PA CLE Ethics Credits were provided.

“The turnout at this year’s Jewish Law Symposium was just phenomenal! Being able to discuss and examine Shakespeare’s classic The Merchant of Venice from a legal perspective led to a most engaging and stimulating panel discussion. Ethical Dilemmas associated with topics of personal prejudice, excessive profits, and right to die are most relevant in the legal world today, and exploring the Talmud’s 2,000 year perspective on these issues proved to be a most thought provoking and worthwhile experience,” said Rabbi Shalom Lubin, founder of the Jewish Law Symposium and Executive Director of Chabad of SE Morris County.

The Jewish Law Symposium is a project of Chabad of SE Morris County, a Jewish outreach and educational organization located at 42 Park Ave. in Madison.
