One of Brooklyn’s top judges, Hon. Lawrence Knipel, administrative judge of the Supreme Court, Civil Term, will join the band Haimisha Hayride in a performance during the Brooklyn Brandeis Society’s annual Purim luncheon at the Brooklyn Bar Association on Tuesday.

It is the fifth annual Purim luncheon the bar association has held and the third public appearance by the judge on the guitar. Justice Knipel once played alongside fellow administrative judge Hon. Matthew D’Emic and his band Whippoorwill in 2017, and then again in November at an event called, “Trials, Tacos and Talent.”

The Brandeis Society President Andrew Fallek said that he is excited to have the judge perform during the luncheon and expects that he will draw a large crowd.

Purim is the Jewish holiday that commemorates the saving of the Jewish people from Haman from the biblical Book of Esther. Members of the bar association gather each year to acknowledge the holiday and share lunch with each other.

Fallek and Rabbi Hanniel Levenson of Congregation Mount Sinai often dress up for the event and the rabbi shares a bit of Jewish history.
