Marshall Dayan to Speak on the Death Penalty April 11 and 12
Marshall Dayan to Speak on the Death Penalty April 11 and 12
Marshall L. Dayan, the State Strategies Coordinator of the national ACLU's Capital Punishment Project, one of the nation's leading authorities on the death penalty and an advisor to JSPAN's Death Penalty Policy Center, will speak in the Philadelphia area on April 11 and 12 at the invitation of JSPAN. (See the flyer above for details.) His topic at both programs is "Jewish Perspectives on the Death Penalty". The programs are free and open to the public.
The death penalty has been described as one of the matters of highest priority to the American Jewish community. Marshall Dayan is eminently qualified to address our community about this critical issue. A graduate in 1986 of the Antioch School of Law in Washington, D.C., he became staff attorney for the North Carolina Death Penalty Resource Center in 1988, where he represented those accused or convicted of capital crimes for seven years, followed by three years in the Office of the Appellate Defender for the State of North Carolina. From 2001 to 2006, Dayan taught Constitutional law at North Carolina Central University School of Law, and accepted his current position in the spring of 2006 with national ACLU's Capital Punishment Project. He has been honored nationally for his death penalty work, most recently in 2003, when he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.
Please join JSPAN for these important dialogues with Marshall Dayan!

Marshall Dayan, First Vice President
JSPAN Newsletter - April 13, 2007, 19 Dec 2011 [cached]
On Wednesday evening, April 11th, at Congregation Beth Am Israel in Penn Valley, and again on Thursday evening, April 12th, at the Germantown Jewish Centre, JSPAN policy expert Marshall L. Dayan spoke about the Jewish Perspective on the Death Penalty.
Dayan, State Strategies Coordinator for the ACLU's Capital Punishment Project, focused the first program on a discussion of Jewish perspectives derived from traditional Jewish teaching. Noting that many advocates of the death penalty rely on biblical text, Dayan cautioned against reading that text out of context and without the benefit of generations of scholarly interpretation.
Dayan observed that under Jewish law there were strict procedural requirements that applied to capital cases, and that under rabbinic tradition there was a heightened effort to avoid imposing a sentence of death. Thus, at least two eyewitnesses to the crime were required. Each eyewitness had to inform the person about to commit the criminal act that doing so would result in his being condemned to die, and the person about to commit the crime had to respond that he understood the consequences of his actions and committed the crime anyway. Circumstantial evidence, upon which so many cases today are decided, was not admissible evidence under traditional Jewish law. So, where a witness saw one man run into a building and saw another man running after the first man with a knife and following him into the building, and then saw the second man run out of the building with blood on his knife, and then saw the first man lying dead and bleeding in the building, that witness could not testify at all because he did not see the man with the knife stab the man who was dead.
