WASHINGTON -- J Street concluded its second annual conference with a gala dinner Monday night that featured Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Ginsburg's surprise appearance was in recognition of Kathleen Peratis, vice chair of the J Street Education Fund  and the honoree of the three-day convention's concluding event. Peratis, a former board member of Human Rights Watch and vice chair of the New Israel Fund, worked for Ginsburg on women's rights issues earlier in her legal career.
