Author David Dalin to speak at TBT on Monday, December 4 at 7 PM

Join us Monday, Dec. 4 at 7 PM to hear author David Dalin discuss his boo, "Jewish Justices of the Supreme Court." David Dalin examines the lives, legal careers, and legacies of the eight Jews who have served or who currently serve as justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. He discusses the relationship that these Jewish justices have had with the presidents who appointed them; he investigates the antisemitism some of the justices encountered in their ascent within the legal profession, as well as the role that antisemitism played in political debates and Senate confirmation battles.
