Skoloff & Wolfe, P.C. co-managing partners, Jonathan W. Wolfe Esq. and David B. Wolfe Esq., served on the advisory board and as an event chair respectively, for the 2020 Jewish Law Symposium, held September 23 via online conference. David Wolfe has served as the event chair since the founding of the event.
The Jewish Law Symposium is geared to attorneys throughout the State of New Jersey who have an interest in exploring, studying, and debating the ethical and moral dilemmas facing the legal community today from both civil law and Talmudic law perspectives.
The theme of the event, “The Ethics of Civility: Being a Mentch in Turbulent Times,” featured a distinguished list of presenters and panelists including: former U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut; the Hon. Patty Shwartz, Judge, U.S. District Court, District of New Jersey; Raymond M. Brown Esq., international human rights attorney and partner, Scarinci Hollenbeck; Paula Franzese, Esq., Professor at Seton Hall Law School; and Sivan Rahav Meir, Israeli media personality, biblical scholar and author.
“It doesn’t matter which practice area an attorney specializes in, a commitment to the ethical practice of law is vital to ensure the fair administration of justice and preserve confidence in our courts,” said Jonathan Wolfe.
“Throughout the years, the panelists who speak at the annual Jewish Law Symposium continue to help all lawyers become better at their professions,” added David Wolfe. “This year’s panel was no different, even in a virtual conference setting, their presentations were powerful and made a lasting impression on all participants.”
The day of the symposium featured two pre-recorded sessions, one in the afternoon and the second in the evening, allowing more than 800 attendees to join the conference and take advantage of the CLE Ethics Credits provided for the states of New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
