This masterful biography traces the development of Louis D. Brandeis, considered one of the greatest justices ever to sit on the Supreme Court. Learn about Brandeis as a reformer, pioneering lawyer and jurist; a man who in his multiple roles helped transform our ideas of free speech, right to privacy, pro bono legal work and the necessity of federal regulation in economic affairs. This biography also explores how BrandO-LMD-Urofskyeis transformed Zionism from a marginal activity into a powerful force in American Jewish affairs. Melvin Urofsky is Professor of Law & Public Policy and Professor Emeritus of History at Virginia Commonwealth University, and the author of American Zionism from Herzl to the Holocaust.

The Bernard Wexler Fund for Jewish History was established in 1996. This endowment fund supports an annual lecture that brings outstanding speakers, scholarly research and contemporary issues to the forefront of learning at the 16th Street J.

Presented in partnership with the 16th Street J’s Leo & Anna Smilow Center for Jewish Living and Learning.
