      1. EVENT RECAP

      On May 16, 2019, AFHU’s Western Region paid tribute to Brian J. Panish, a leading U.S. trial attorney in Los Angeles. Mr. Panish, a Founding Partner of Panish Shea & Boyle LLP, received the Harvey L. Silbert Torch of Learning Award in recognition of his professional achievements and civic leadership. Professor Barak Medina, Rector of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and former Dean of the Faculty of Law brought greetings from the university. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and foreign affairs expert Bret Stephens, an Op-Ed columnist for the New York Times, was the keynote speaker.

      General chairs for the Harvey L. Silbert dinner were Stephen J. Cloobeck, Patricia L. Glaser and Sam Mudie, with proceeds benefiting the Faculty of Law at the Hebrew University.
