David Dalin, Jewish Justices of the Supreme Court, From Brandeis to Kagan
Dalin’s book highlights the eight Jewish men and women who have served, or who currently serve, as Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. Dalin will discusses how the appointment of Brandeis in 1916 began the tradition of a“Jewish Seat” on the Supreme Court and the role that anti-Semitism may have played in the lives of the justices and in their Senate confirmation hearings.
