Barbara Freedman Wand was sworn in to the United States Supreme Court Bar as part of her involvement in the Hadassah National Attorneys Council. She was joined by eleven Council members for a two-day private event that included an official swearing in ceremony before the entire court, a meeting with Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Associate Justice, and an address from Pamela Talkin, the 10th Marshal of the Supreme Court. In addition, the admittees listened to oral arguments in Currier v. Virginia and Hays, Kansas v. Vogt and were given a tour of the Supreme Court Library, including the rare books room.
Founded in 1912, Hadassah is a volunteer organization that inspires a passion for and commitment to its partnership with the land and people of Israel. Its National Attorneys Council includes members who contribute their professional legal experience to assist Hadassah in advocating on a variety of issues important to women and the Jewish community.
