ADL Dinner Doles Out Deborah, Jurisprudence Awards
The Anti-Defamation League feted a doctor, an L.A. city councilwoman and two lawyers during its Deborah and Jurisprudence Awards dinner at the new Montage Beverly Hills Hotel on Sept. 30.
Recipients of the 15th annual Deborah Awards, presented each year to two women, were Dr. Aliza Lifshitz, an internist with Cedars-Sinai, author and health reporter who has been named one of People en Español’s “25 Most Influential Latinas,” and third-term Los Angeles City Councilwoman Jan Perry.
Stacy D. Phillips, a prominent divorce attorney from Phillips, Lerner, Lauzon & Jamra, LLP, and Thomas E. Holliday, a retired expert litigator from Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, were presented with the Jurisprudence Awards, which annually acknowledge members of the legal community who support ADL’s mission.
