Highland Park Hadassah Leader Sworn In at US Supreme Court

Rebecca Begelman Strub, JD, LLM, of Highland Park, joined 10 colleagues from Hadassah’s National Attorneys and Judges Council as they were sworn in to the United States Supreme Court Bar on February 28. Strub is an estate planning attorney who helps families create wills and trusts, name guardians for their kids, and do all of the things they know they should do, but always just seem to put off. She is also president of the Raritan Valley Chapter of Hadassah.

“Being sworn in means that I could argue a case before the Supreme Court. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience to take the oath in the highest court in our nation,” Strub said. “Also, I enjoyed the opportunity to meet fellow Hadassah women and men who are as passionate about Israel, law and civic activism as I am.”

Hadassah’s swearing-in program commenced with dinner and a presentation by Nicole Saharsky, co-head of Meyer Brown’s Supreme Court and Appellate Practice. Saharsky has argued 30 cases before the Supreme Court and described how she prepares and what it’s like to present a cas.

The following day at the Supreme Court, the admittees participated in the official swearing-in ceremony before the entire court. No cameras are allowed in the courtroom, so there are no pictures. The court then went right into oral arguments in the cases Garland v. Cargill and Coinbase, Inc. v. Suski.

The Hadassah National Attorneys and Judges Council participates in an amicus curiae program, collaborating with other American organizations as a friend of the court, contributing to briefs that specifically address issues aligned with Hadassah’s policy priorities, such as women’s health and First Amendment freedoms. Attorneys and law students are invited to join the National Attorneys and Judges Council.
