Louis D. Brandeis, His Jewish Identity, and American Zionism

April 3, 2019, 5:30 PM


In this talk, David Dalin will discuss Louis D. Brandeis’s Jewish identity, views on Zionism, and leadership of the American Zionist movement. Although for the first half-century of his life, Brandeis was a highly assimilated Jew who cared little about the religious observance of Judaism. By 1914 Brandeis had assumed the leadership of the American Zionist movement, becoming president of what today is the Zionist Organization of America.

David G. Dalin is the author of Jewish Justices of the Supreme Court from Brandeis to Kagan: Their Lives and Legacies.
