Human Services and Corporate Philanthropy and Baker & Daniels and Pro Bono and Law and Philanthropy

Firm helping Holocaust survivors

November 17, 2008
Baker & Daniels LLP is partnering with the Bet Tzedek Holocaust Survivors Justice Network to provide pro bono legal services to Indiana's more than 200 survivors.

The network, a coalition of more than 90 law firms and corporate legal departments, as well as 30 Jewish social-services agencies, provides free services to Holocaust survivors seeking reparations. It was established in 2007 following the creation of a German program that provides a one-time payment of $3,100 to survivors who worked while living in a German-controlled ghetto.

Baker & Daniels is Indiana's coordinating law firm and helped develop a partnership between the Bet Tzedek program and the Indianapolis Jewish Community Center and Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis. More than 40 lawyers at the firm are participating in the project.

Bet Tzedek, which means "the house of justice" in Hebrew, is a Los Angeles-based law firm that provides free legal services to low-income, disabled and elderly citizens.
