“I thought I knew a lot about the Supreme Court’s eight Jewish justices, since I have known six of them personally. But I learned so much more from David Dalin's brilliant and readable account of their very different lives and connections to their Jewish heritage. A must read for anyone interested in Jewish, American or legal history.”—Alan Dershowitz, Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus, Harvard Law School, and author of Taking the Stand: My Life in the Law
