Making a Better World: RBG 1st Memorial

October 19th @ 10:00am - 11:30am

Just a year ago, RBG passed in the midst of the pandemic and political turmoil, but her memory is here to stay.

In this special event, we will celebrate and commemorate RBG’s life project: making the world a better place for the under represented, known in the Jewish tradition as Tikun Olam.

We are honored to host the former president of the Israeli Supreme Court, Dorit Beinisch, a personal friend of RBG and the first woman to lead the Israeli Supreme court, along with Alison Brunner, CEO of the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley. Beinisch and Brunner will join us in a conversation on social justice, Jewish identity and the role of women in leading a change. Led by Dr. Anat Balint, coordinator of the Jewish Studies program.

This is the first event in a series of events on Jewish Culture by the Jewish Studies program at San Jose State University, Jewish Silicon Valley, Congregation Beth David, Congregation Sinai, Congregation Shir Hadash, and Consulate General of Israel.

Free and open to the public.
