It is a local chapter of B’nai B’rith International. Its members consist of Jewish attorneys and judges, located primarily Broward County, Florida. BBJU has provided an important avenue for civic and social involvement of our members while carrying out the ideals of B’nai B’rith. BBJU sponsors social, educational and charitable programs for its members in conjunction with other Broward County voluntary bar associations and professional organizations.
We focus on Jewish tradition and the Jewish future. We support B’nai B’rith ideals and work to promote local, national and international charities. We offer the opportunity to build camaraderie and network with local attorneys and judges. We provide social as well as educational events. ( CLE credit may be available ) We demonstrate leadership by example. We contribute to the community’s needs by assisting Hatikvah House residents in Coral Springs, supporting Jewish Adoption & Foster Care Options (JAFCO), offering mentoring programs for young adults and providing other needed resources to the community. We contribute to the legal profession’s needs by recognizing excellence in law students at local law schools, participating in Law Day activities, the 17th Judicial Circuit Robing Ceremony and other judicial and bar association functions.
