It was just over one year ago that Russia invaded Ukraine, creating a refugee crisis the world has not seen in some time, and making life incredibly difficult for Ukrainian citizens. When our Rhode Island Jewish community came together, we contributed to an effort that not only changed lives, it saved lives. And as we reflect on this conflict one year later, my gratitude for your support has only grown.

I want to invite all of you to our Cardozo Society event on Wednesday, March 22 at 5:30pm at the Dwares JCC. The Cardozo Society is made up of lawyers and judges from across Rhode Island, but we welcome everyone to join us for this event. We will honor the legacies of two major legal figures from our community who have passed away since the last time we were able to bring this group together. We’ll hear tributes to Robert Berkelhammer and Ronald Markoff, and we’ll hear from Dr. David G. Dalin on his book, Jewish Justices of the Supreme Court: From Brandeis to Kagan.

Until next time, I wish you a safe, peaceful, and joyous Shabbat.
