The Honorable Supreme Court Justice
Ruth Bader Gingsburg
By Evan Sorce, Chair, MCDCC
Tonight is Rosh Hashanah, which is the Jewish New Year - this is a time that leads to reflection and repentance in the Jewish Faith as we prepare for Yom Kippur, which is the Day of Atonement.
In the Tradition, a person who dies on Rosh Hashanah is a tzaddik - a person of great righteousness. This definitely describes Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the first Jewish woman on the Supreme Court, and a lifelong fighter for the underdog. Baruch Dayan Emet.
In Justice Ginsburg’s final hours, she dictated to her granddaughter Clara Spera from her death bed a simple request. “my most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
Quite simply, it is on all of us to make Justice Ginsburg’s final wish. We have 45 days left to do everything we possibly can to honor her last wish. I know what I will be doing for the next 45 days.
What about you?
