Law symposium to focus on ‘Fiddler’

THE JEWISH LAW Symposium will convene its 13th annual event with a focus on “Ethical Lessons from Fiddler on the Roof: Persecution, Immigration, Tolerating Tradition.” Justice Barry T. Albin of the New Jersey Supreme Court and a panel of prominent legal figures will be featured at the program — a project of the Rabbinical College of America in Morristown — on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at the Birchwood Manor in Whippany.

The aim of the program, said Rabbi Shalom Lubin, founder of the symposium and Chabad of SE Morris County, is “to explore real-life ethical and moral dilemmas that present themselves in the classical story of ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ through the lens of the Talmud and 2,000 years of Jewish ethics and wisdom.” The topics, he said, “are timelier than ever.”

Lubin will moderate the panel discussion featuring Lawrence Lustberg, Esq.; Christopher Porrino, Esq.; the Hon. Barbara Byrd Wecker (Ret.); and Simon Wiesenthal Center scholar Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein.

A dinner reception will begin at 5 p.m., the program at 6:30. The cost is $150, $80 for public-sector attorneys and law clerks, $50 for law students. Scholarships are available, subject to availability; 2.5 continuing legal education (ethics) and professional credits will be provided.
