Lecture by Cody Harris: Constitutional Law 101 at Manny's

The Jewish Bar Association of San Francisco's next program will be a lecture by our boardmember Cody Harris, a partner at Keker, Van Nest & Peters LLP and an instructor with Stanford Law School's Continuing Studies program, on Constitutional Law and First Amendment rights such as free speech and freedom of religion.

The lecture will take place at 6 pm on Thursday, May 23, at Manny's Restaurant, 3092 16th Street in the Mission District, which has been at the center of First Amendment controversy in recent months with angry protests by anti-Israel groups seeking a boycott of the restaurant due to their objections to Israeli politics and complaints about perceived "gentrification." Manny, the restaurant's namesake, is Jewish.

Here are some articles on the controversy:

The event and lecture are $6, which goes to support Manny's during this challenging period. Please sign up.

We hope you can attend.
