30 November 2016, the AJC Judge Learned Hand Award Dinner was held at the Pierre Hotel in NY in the honor of Eric J. Friedman, Executive Partner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.

As one of the sponsors of the event, Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen was represented by Dan Moalem and Anders Pedersen (currently seconded to Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP in NY).

We had invited good friends to join us at our table from Dorsey (New York), Goodmans (Toronto), Mannheimer Swartling (Stockholm), McGuire Woods (New York), Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison (New York), Ropes & Gray (Boston) and Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom (New York and London).

Established in 1964, AJC’s Judge Learned Hand Award is granted each year to an attorney who has contributed meaningfully to the legal community and whose work at the bar and beyond reflects the integrity and broad humanitarian ideals exemplified by Judge Hand.

In this, the 110th year of AJC advocacy, Judge Hand’s insights remain extraordinarily relevant. We cannot let indifference prevail. We must all take responsibility to ensure that our children, grandchildren and co-citizens, disregarding religious, political or sexual affiliation, may live in a free and respectful world.

For more than a century, the AJC has been the leading global Jewish advocacy organization. With offices across the United States and around the globe, and partnerships with Jewish communities worldwide, AJC works to enhance the well-being of the Jewish people and to advance human rights and democratic values for all.
