Guest in the Pulpit

Judge Jack B. Weinstein
will offer the lecture
"Difficult Moral Choices: Gaza"

Friday evening,
Sept. 12, 2014 at 7:30pm

It is with pride and pleasure that the officers and board of Temple Emanuel of Great Neck announce that the Honorable Jack B. Weinstein, Senior U.S. District Judge of the Eastern District of New York and longtime Honorary Trustee of Temple Emanuel, will speak from the pulpit, Sept. 12, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. He will offer the talk: "Difficult Moral Choices: Gaza."
For thirty years, Jack B. Weinstein has championed the fight for an independent judiciary. As a federal district judge (and later chief judge) for the Eastern District of New York, he has written, lectured, and testified about the importance of fostering strong, free-thinking jurists in the U.S. courts. As senior judge (with semi-retired status) since 1988, he chooses only the complex cases he wishes to hear, yet continues to be a watchdog for those in society most vulnerable to exploitation. An activist judge in an increasingly conservative environment, Judge Weinstein perseveres with his controversial, hands-on approach to resolving court cases, and continues to have an impact on a myriad of lives.
All members of the community are invited to attend the Sabbath Eve Service.
Temple Emanuel of Great Neck is located at 150 Hicks Lane..
