    Enhance Your Brain: Mindfulness Practice as a Way to Increase and Preserve Cognition
    LOCATION
    Zoom
    Cognitive abilities gradually decline with normal aging, even in physically healthy individuals. Scientific advances have led to steady increases in physical health and expected lifespans, yet little has been done to promote cognitive resilience with advanced aging. In this talk Dr. Lazar will present data demonstrating how regular mindfulness practice can help both enhance and preserve brain structure and function, and how these brain changes in turn lead to improved memory and attention across the lifespan.

    This event is approved for 1.0 hour of JBEC General Education credit.

    Being Jewish In America: A Candid Discussion
    LOCATION
    Zoom
    Join four bench officers for a discussion about the experience of being Jewish in America in the 21st century. The discussion will cover issues of Jewish identity, the problems and dangers posed by anti-Semitism, and how the judicial officers' Jewish heritage does or does not affect their lives on and off the bench.
    Being a member of the Jewish community presents particular joys, challenges and complexities. We hope a discussion of these issues will help foster further understanding of our diverse backgrounds, and how those backgrounds affect our lives.

    Panelists:
    • Justice Richard D. Fybel, Fourth District Court of Appeal
    • Judge Joseph M. Lipner, Los Angeles County
    • Justice Marla J. Miller, First District Court of Appeal
    Moderated by: Judge Nicole C. Bershon, Los Angeles County

    MCLE: This event qualifies for 1.0 hour of MCLE, and 1.0 hour of JBEC General Education credit will be available.
