Introduction I practiced corporate law, represented non-profits and people with moderate income, helped start the field of divorce mediation, was Harvard law School’s public interest adviser, founded the Public Interest Law Career Planning Center (now the Center for Professional Development in the Law) for those seeking positions consistent with their goals and values, presented workshops at law schools, provided individual guidance to law students and lawyers, and wrote Lawful Pursuit: Careers in Public Interest Law published by the ABA in 1995. In the Jewish community, in 1971, I and my wife, Joan, co-founded one of the first family "havurah", and for 15 years celebrated Jewish holidays and bar/t mitzvahs. Our family spent five weeks touring Israel and working on a kibbutz in 1981. I have served on the boards of a local United Way, JCC, Jewish Federation, temples, the Tikkun Community, and the Israel Fund. Joan and I founded the Center for Jewish Alternatives,, and advise Jewish people alienated from local Jewish institutions who wish to incorporate Jewish values, principles and traditions into their lives.
