The Cardozo Society was founded by the Attorneys Division of the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas to strengthen relationships among Jewish lawyers in Dallas by promoting community service, education, and leadership. It is also intended to help address Jewish perspectives on current legal matters and strengthen relationships among lawyers by fostering religious and cultural enrichment between Jewish lawyers and the public at-large. The Cardozo Society is named in honor of the late Supreme Court Justice Benjamin N. Cardozo, whose decisions reflected his dedication to public welfare.
