The missions of the Decalogue Society of Lawyers are to: 1. Act to address special problems and opportunities facing our members as attorney and Jews. 2. Address problems and opportunities to benefit the Jewish community, legal community, and public. 3. Foster the traditions and ideals of American democracy and to express support for the State of Israel. 4. Maintain vigilance against public and private practices which are anti-social, discriminatory, anti-Semitic or oppressive and join with other groups and minorities to protect legal rights and privileges. 5. Raise the standards of the bar and the bench and educate the public to better understand and appreciate the function and status of the lawyer and judge in a free society. 6. Foster friendly relations, networking, and goodwill among our members, and between our members and other attorneys, bar associations, the courts, and the public.
