Barry L. Lippitt, Esq.
National  Chancellor

The events of Tuesday, September 11, 2001 represent an attack on the fundamental values for which our country and society stand, including the rule of law.  As lawyers, we have a special responsibility to respond to attacks on the democratic way of life by advocating the merits of justice and denouncing the cruelties of unreasoning hatred.

To our knowledge, none of our members were injured or are missing as a result of the attack on the World Trade Center.  Even so, we all suffer from personal losses and communal sorrow when beset by a calamity of this magnitude.

If the Society can be of any assistance to any of our members at this time, whether personally or professionally, please send an e-mail to me or to our Executive Director.

At this time of year, I had planned to send out a new year's greeting and wish to our Jewish brethren, saying to each of you "L'shanah Tova Tikatevu (May you be inscribed in the Book of Life for a good year).  I would enlarge on this though to include our entire community in these wishes.
