"I was at the Tower today with my whole family - my husband, our 3 sons and my mother! I was so proud to see everything and to show them what all of us have accomplished! Loved having a personal guided tour! Also got to see the new synagogue at the Tower and sat in the Greater Southwest Region Chair and the Houston Chapter Chair, both on the front row! AWESOME!"

Supreme Court Swearing In

Hadassah's National Center for Attorneys Councils had another incredible United States Supreme Court Swearing In Program on February 18-19, 2013. The event included a full day at the United States Supreme Court—courtroom access for two cases, a private and candid discussion with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and a special tour of the Supreme Court Library and rare book collection. The event commenced the evening prior with dinner and a presentation by Alliance for Justice Founder Nan Aron. Fifteen Life Members and Associates and their guests were treated to an unparallel 24-hour experience which reflects Hadassah's prestige and the close relationship that it has with the highest court in the land.
