Mission, Vision, and Values

The Decalogue Society of Lawyers, founded in 1934, is the nation’s oldest Jewish bar association. Decalogue’s mission is to advance our lawyers’ professional development, raise the standards of the bar and bench, educate the public on legal and Jewish issues, and maintain vigilance against discriminatory public and private practices, particularly anti-Semitism. Also, we are dedicated to supporting Jewish interests through building relationships with attorneys and professionals in other ethnic and religious organizations and the Jewish community at large.
