Tales from a Death Row Attorney

Who Shall Live and Who Shall Die

Madeline Cohen, a federal public defender and Har HaShem congregant, has been involved in death penalty cases throughout her legal career. Recently, she represented Oklahoma death row inmate Charles Warner, who received a temporary stay of execution following the controversial botched execution of fellow inmate Clayton Lockett. On Saturday evening, November 14th at 7:00 pm, please join us to hear Madeline Cohen’s reflections on the death penalty. Rabbi Fred Greene will share what the Jewish tradition has to say about the death penalty.

This event will include a havdalah service, refreshments, and presentations by Madeline Cohen and Rabbi Greene. There is no cost to attend and all are welcome. Please RSVP here so we know to expect you.
