Judith Bernstein-Baker, executive director of HIAS Pennsylvania, was honored this past weekend by the Philadelphia Bar Foundation at its 35th annual Andrew Hamilton Benefit.
Bernstein-Baker, cited as an "exceptional public interest attorney," was presented the Philadelphia Bar Foundation Award (formerly known as the Louis D. Apothaker Award) at the event, which is a fundraiser for the foundation's grants projects.
Also cited at the gathering: Philanthropists Sheila and Edward Chacker — he was a former head of the foundation and chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association — were named Pillars of Justice, honored for their support of public interest legal work.
