|Decalogue mourns the loss of Judge Abner J. Mikva|
Decalogue mourns the loss of Judge Abner J. Mikva, a champion of justice, and long-time Decalogue member.
As a lawyer, political activist, state legislator, congressman, judge, and Presidential counselor, Abner Mikva fought for civil rights and civil liberties, social and economic justice, and open, honest, responsive government.
Decalogue extends our deepest condolences to Abner's wife Zoe, daughters Judge Mary Mikva, Laurie Mikva, and Rabbi Rachel Mikva, and their families.
Services are private but a public memorial will be held in August.
Memorial contributions can be made to the Abner & Zoe Mikva Legacy Fund
at the Mikva Challenge, a non-profit which works to educate and empower young people to become active citizens and community leaders.
Read tributes to Judge Mikva:
May his memory be for a blessing.
AAJLJ Statement on Nomination of Judge Merrick Garland
March 30, 2016
For Immediate Release
The American Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists (“AAJLJ”), in recognition of the critical importance of a Supreme Court with a full complement of Justices to the effective administration of law and justice, urges the United States Senate to promptly undertake its constitutional role of fairly considering the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland, and then advising on, and, if it so determines, consenting to, the nomination.
The AAJLJ was founded in 1983 and is affiliated with the International Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists (“IAJLJ”). The IAJLJ was founded in 1969 by the late Justice Arthur J. Goldberg of the United States Supreme Court, the late Justice Haim Cohen of the Supreme Court of Israel, and René Cassin, French Nobel Laureate and author of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The AAJLJ is the voluntary bar association of American Jewish lawyers.
