    The Orange County Jewish Bar Association has been monitoring the status of the ongoing health advisories, including the most recent advisory issued by Governor Newsom yesterday. The current reports indicate that the elderly and medically fragile are most susceptible to COVID-19, and the recommendation is to avoid large non-essential gatherings and increase social distance. Therefore, given the age of the survivor population, in an abundance of caution, the Board has decided to postpone the Annual Dinner. 

    We are exceedingly grateful to our sponsors and underwriters: 

    Kaufman Steinberg, Wilner O'Reilly, Law Office of Brian Gurwitz

    AHAVA Law, P.C., Morten Fairchild

    Stradling, Kahana & Feld

    Law Office of Susan Medweid, and  Hon. Jim Jackman (Ret) and Karen Jackman. 

    All sponsorships, underwriting, and individual tickets will be applied to the new date TBD. Please contact smf@ahavalaw.com if you need to make alternate arrangements. 

    Very Respectfully,
    Sheila-Marie Finkelstein
