Barry I. Slotnick, chairman of the New York Litigation Group at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, was mentioned in a July 2, 2008, article that was published in The Jewish Week, which is widely recognized as the largest and most respected Jewish newspaper in the United States.

The article, titled "Courting Jewish Lawyers," discusses the recently-formed Justice Brandeis Westchester Law Society. The article reports on the idea behind the society and its mission, which is to "provide a social vehicle to network, encourage civility and build camaraderie among attorneys while celebrating their Jewish heritage and Jewish values in the law. The society’s members seek to combine aspects of their lives unique to being both attorneys and Jews."

Also noted in the article is Slotnick's involvement with the Brandeis Society.

"Recently, the society sponsored a debate between Barry Slotnick, a noted New York defense attorney, and Rabbi Velvel Butman, director of Chabad of Westchester County, about the intersection between Jewish values and the law that included a discussion about providing kosher food for Jewish inmates."
