Event Details

The year 2017 marked the near simultaneous retirement of the three most senior members of the Israeli Supreme Court. President Miriam Naor, Deputy President Elyakim Rubenstein, and Justice Salim Joubran all reached the mandatory retirement age of 70. President Naor has remarked that their departure is "the end of an era" because they are the last members of the Court to have Palestine birth certificates. But apart from that symbolic closure, the departure of these three important justices marks an unusual juncture in the Court's evolution. It is an appropriate moment both to acknowledge and evaluate the jurisprudential contributions of these three Justices and to take stock of the Court's position in Israeli law and society.

The Institute for Israel and Jewish Studies at Columbia University and the Israel Supreme Court Project at the Cardozo School of Law have joined forces to present this unique event.
