Attendees are invited to join the 31st year of the Adolf-Adams JCC Forum featuring special guest Dahlia Lithwick.

Lithwick is set to delve into the discussion on the U.S. Supreme Court – exploring its past developments and anticipating future prospects.

The event is scheduled for Thursday, March 14th, at 7:30 p.m., hosted at the Weinstein JCC.

Lithwick is a MSNBC analyst and a senior legal correspondent at Slate and one of the nation’s foremost legal commentators.

She is the host of Amicus, Slate’s award-winning biweekly podcast about the law and the Supreme Court, and author of the instant New York Times bestseller Lady Justice, which recounts the stories of women attorneys and how they fought to succeed in their profession.

In 2018, Lithwick received the American Constitution Society’s Progressive Champion Award, and the Hillman Prize for Opinion and Analysis and was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Her work has appeared in the New York Times, Harper’s, The New Yorker, The Washington Post, The New Republic, and Commentary.

Lithwick earned her BA in English from Yale University and her JD degree from Stanford University and has held visiting faculty positions at the University of Georgia Law School, the University of Virginia School of Law, and the Hebrew University Law School in Jerusalem.

She has appeared on CNN, ABC, The Colbert Report, The Daily Show and, frequently, on The Rachel Maddow Show.

Lithwick was determined, by a group of Jewish community leaders, to be a wonderful addition to the Adolf-Adams JCC Forum guest speakers.  In an effort to bring dynamic, provocative and relevant information to our community, Dahlia was considered a top choice.

“I am thrilled that the Weinstein JCC will be bringing in such an outstanding journalist who prolifically writes about the world as she sees it through her lens. Lithwick focuses on the work of many women as described and dramatized in her 2022 book Lady Justice. Those of us pursuing the work of equality and social justice are eager to hear her presentation and are thrilled at the decision of the JCC to bring her to Richmond,” said Miriam Davidow.

Join Dahlia Lithwick as she leads us in a non-partisan discussion about the Supreme Court; how it started, where it is now and where we are headed.
