Feedback form is now closed.
We are instructed as Jews in many of our teachings to pursue justice. Working in the courts, the panelists have the opportunity every day to engage in that pursuit. They will discuss the connection between partiality, money, and fairness in the courts as explored in our Jewish teachings. The panelists explore some of the initiatives underway to ensure accountability around civil rights violations, criminal courts, and corruption in Orleans Parish.  The discussion will also center on the Noahide Laws and how these laws relate to and influence the work of the panelists.
