Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
This morning, KabShab took a long, worthy look at the life and impact of Justice Ginsberg. Students and teachers alike shared deeply meaningful perspectives on her legacy.
“Though, at 87 years old after a remarkable and well-lived life, during Rosh Hashana 5780, RBG may have been sealed in the book of death. However she was given until the very last day of 5780 to survive. To me, this feels significant.” -Cody Bahir
Ms. Ratledge lead a moving talk around the impact RBG had, “Justice Ginsburg saw it as her life’s work to erase the functional difference between women and men in society, and that “everybody should be on equal footing in the eyes of the law.” Adding a quote from Princeton history professor, Cornel West, that is an exemplification of Ginsburg’s work in the courtroom and on the bench, “To accept your country without betraying it you must love it for that which shows what it might become. America–this monument to the genius of ordinary men and women, this place where hope becomes capacity, this long, halting turn of the ‘no’ into the ‘yes’ –needs citizens who love it enough to re-imagine and remake it.”
