More than 450 supporters gathered to honor eminent attorneys Jonathan Anschell, Executive Vice President and General Counsel of CBS Television, Senior Vice President and Deputy General Counsel of CBS Corporation, and Dick Volpert, Senior Partner at Glaser Weil Fink Howard Avchen & Shapiro LLP, both recipients of the Harvey L. Silbert Torch of Learning Award. Mr. Volpert’s children proudly accepted the award on their father’s behalf as he was unable to attend due to very recent major back surgery. Dinner Chairs were Patricia Glaser, AFHU Western Region Vice Chair and her husband Sam Mudie. Keynote speaker was notable Holocaust scholar, Dr. Deborah Lipstadt. Special guest speakers were Israel Consul General David Siegel and HU Faculty of Law Dean, Professor Yuval Shany. The evening’s proceeds will benefit The Hebrew University and its Faculty of Law, and advance AFHU’s mission on behalf of the university.
