The Tampa JCCs and Federation’s 16th Annual President’s Dinner will be held on Sunday, January 27, 2019 at the Bryan Glazer Family JCC. Co-chairs Deborah Rosenthal and Cherie Silberman have announced Alan Dershowitz as the evening’s guest speaker.
Professor Alan M. Dershowitz is a Brooklyn native who has been called “the nation’s most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer” and one of its “most distinguished defenders of individual rights,” “the best-known criminal lawyer in the world,” and “the top lawyer of last resort.” He has been named America’s most “public Jewish Defender,” and “the Jewish state’s lead attorney in the court of public opinion.” He is the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus, at Harvard Law School. Dershowitz, a graduate of Brooklyn College and Yale Law School, joined the Harvard Law School faculty at age 25 – the youngest in the school’s history – and became an Emeritus professor after 50 years of teaching and 10,000 students.
Dershowitz has also published more than 1,000 articles in magazines, newspapers, journals and blogs. These include the New York Times, for which he has written numerous op-eds, book reviews and articles for the Week in Review, as well as for the Magazine and entertainment sections. He has also written for The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Harvard Law Review, the Yale Law Journal, the Huffington Post, Gatestone, Newsmax, Jerusalem Post, Ha’aretz, and Algemeiner. Professor Dershowitz is the author of 35 fiction and non-fiction works with a worldwide audience, including the New York Times #1 bestseller Chutzpah and five other national bestsellers. In his latest book, The Case Against BDS, Dershowitz reinforces his long standing record of presenting the issues of the day with "trenchant legal analysis" and "Using the scalpel of scholarship."
