AJU’s 17th Annual Biblical Trial: Shinar City Council v. Babel Builders

Hosted By: American Jewish University's Whizin Center for Continuing Education

AJU’s Biblical Trial is going virtual! Join us as the jury and cast your vote in the case of Shinar City Council vs. Babel Builders, as esteemed attorneys work their sides of the case in this annual AJU tradition.

Moderated by Rabbi Ed Feinstein, we will watch in suspense and question if the defendant’s clients are up to no good again. Laurie Levenson will be the plaintiff’s attorney, arguing why God was right to punish the unruly group who built the Tower of Babel. But don’t count the defendants out! As always, the brilliant Erwin Chemerinsky will be there to defend their actions. The Honorable Burt Pines will be presiding over the court proceedings.

We look forward to seeing you in the courtroom!
