Voters will head to the polls on May 21 and be asked to fill nine open judicial seats.

There are races for judicial openings in Pennsylvania’s Superior Court (two seats), in Philadelphia’s Municipal Court (one seat) and in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas (six seats).

We have profiled five judges from the Jewish community (in alphabetical order, not ballot order) who responded to our request for information.

The general election will be held Nov. 5.
