Justine Wise Polier

A fighter throughout her life for the rights of children and minorities, Justine Wise Polier was a judge of the New York City Family Court for thirty-eight years. She attributed her main goals of fighting injustice and "speaking truly… without fear" to the influence of the Hebrew prophets and her father, Rabbi Stephen Wise.
