The Jewish Federation of Greater Houston’s Cardozo Society is our honorary philanthropic society of Jewish attorneys in the Greater Houston area.

 

The Cardozo Society is named after the renowned Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, Benjamin Cardozo (1870-1938), who was Sephardic.  Appointed to the Supreme Court in 1932 by President Herbert Hoover, Cardozo was one of the foremost spokesmen on sociological jurisprudence. With Justices Louis D. Brandeis and Harlan F. Stone, he voted to uphold much early New Deal legislation. Cardozo's legacy includes an expansion of the legal duty owed in tort law. He also worked to undergird contract law with principles of fairness, making contract law more reasonable and practical.

 

Past Cardozo Society event speakers include Jurist and Author, Alan Dershowitz; Comedian, Joel Chasnoff; Legal commentator & TV host, Dan Abrams; Chief of the National Constitution Center, Jeffrey Rosen; News Correspondent, Dan Ravi; political satire group, Capitol Steps; and Human Rights Professor, Thane Rosenbaum.

 

Society membership requires each person to make an annual donation of $1000 to our Annual Campaign. Members 35 and under are required to make an annual donation of only $500.
