Amy Herman, a lawyer and art historian, uses works of art to sharpen observation, analysis, and communication skills. By showing people how to look closely at painting, sculpture, and photography, she helps them hone their visual intelligence to recognize the most pertinent and useful information as well as recognize biases that impede decision making. For 14 years, Herman has been our nation’s secret weapon, providing leadership training to top officers in the United States military, law enforcement, medicine, education, and industry.
Samantha Schosberg Feuer attended Tufts University and University of Florida Law School. Learning the importance of giving back to the community at a young age from her mother who was a teacher, Samantha returned to South Florida after law school and advocated for victims of violent crime as a prosecutor. In the summer of 2020, Samantha served as an associate judge at the Fourth District Court of Appeal. In 2022, she was awarded the Jurist of the Year from both the Palm Beach County Justice Association as the American Board of Trial Attorneys. Samantha is active in the Florida Association for Women Lawyers (FAWL) and has served for the past 8 years as the Chair of the Pro Bono Circuit Committee for Palm Beach Court.
Professor Kerker has taught graduate and undergraduate courses at Lynn University for over 20 years. In 2010, Kerker created a one-of-a-kind Nuremberg Trials class, using original documents from the trial (The Blue Series) donated to Lynn University by the League for Educational Awareness of the Holocaust (LEAH). She has presented on the Nuremberg Trials at the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, for local community groups, and to over 1,500 middle school and high school students.

Producer Nancy Spielberg grew up immersed in filmmaking, working on her brother Steven’s early films as cast and crew. In recent years she has turned her energy and talents to producing documentary films. One of her priorities is to help preserve Jewish stories and make them educational tools for the benefit of younger generations.
Seven years ago, Rabbi Jessica Spitalnic Mates developed a friendship with Nathan Hilu, by then in his 90s. At the age of 19, as a young American soldier, Nathan was sent to guard the Nazis at the Nuremberg trials and spent the rest of his life doing only two things – working in a book store and drawing again and again and again the most evil men in the world, the Nuremberg defendants.
At this screening, Rabbi Mates in conversation with producers Nancy Spielberg and Elan Golod, will explore Nancy’s founding of Jewish Story Partners with her famous brother, and why Elan Golod’s “Nathan-ism” is such an important film to help us never forget the Holocaust.
Project Nuremberg brings high-profile speakers to our community to show that law is what brought order to a post-Holocaust, post-WWII world. Each year, hundreds of attorneys gather at Temple Beth El for our annual Lawyers Luncheons, which showcase these speakers and allow them to share their unique experiences with the law. Past speakers have included Ben Ferencz, Avner Avraham, Senator Christopher Dodd, Alan Dershowitz, Florida Supreme Court Justice Robert Luck, Eli M. Rosenbaum, and many more distinguished guests.
For over a decade, we have focused on the legacy of the Nuremberg Trials after Rabbi Jessica Spitalnic Mates rescued a record of the trials that was almost thrown away: the Blue Series. These documents are traced back to Justice Robert Jackson, and are currently housed at Lynn University. They are an enduring testament to the good that lawyers and judges can do.
In 2021, Project Nuremberg Online became an additional option for participating, with CLE credits available for lawyers practicing throughout the state of Florida. That option will continue in 2022.
