Professor Alan M. Dershowitz Addresses Flatbush Students

On April 4, 2017 the Yeshivah of Flatbush Joel Braverman High School had the honor of hosting esteemed lawyer Professor Alan M. Dershowitz of Harvard University. Dershowitz, a graduate of Brooklyn College and Yale Law School, joined the Harvard Law School faculty at age 25 after clerking for Judge David Bazelon and Justice Arthur Goldberg. He has also published more than 1000 articles in magazines, newspapers, journals and blogs such as The New York Times Magazine, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and The Harvard Law Review. Professor Dershowitz is the author of over 30 fiction and non-fiction works with a worldwide audience, including The New York Times #1 bestseller Chutzpah and five other national bestsellers, including The Case For Israel and My Life in the Law.

Dershowitz spoke to all of the students about the problems facing the State of Israel on campuses and around the world and gave them insight on how to combat these issues. As “Israel’s single most visible defender” he explained how he was encouraged to support Israel while inspiring the students to follow in his footsteps. A panel of Israel advocacy students engaged Dershowitz with stimulating questions regarding the situation in Israel. After this event, Dershowitz left us all with a renewed drive to support the State of Israel.
