The annual Arthur Goodman Lecture on the Law honors one of Temple Beth El's Founders, attorney Arthur Goodman. Arthur focused on those without a voice in our community: immigrants, minorities and the disabled as well as abused and neglected adults and children. Today, as we read headline after headline about children who are in danger because of abusive families, we can feel helpless. This year's lecture empowers us by bringing together a lawyer from the Council for Children's Rights, a Guardian ad Litem and the head of DSS in Mecklenburg County. They will be joined by our clergy to tell us how we can stand for children...our own, in our Jewish community and the community at large. The program is free and open to the public.
