My conscious won’t leave me alone and I feel strongly compelled to pay tribute to this champion of women’s rights, but first a little trivia.
Did you know she passed away on the first evening of Rash Hashanah or The Feast of Trumpets, which is marked by 10 days of repentance, followed by The Day of Atonement, marked by a full day of fasting which begins at 6 pm the 27th until 6pm the 28th. Her burial does not take place until these events have ended.
RBG or as I like to affectionately call her, Miss Ruthy, graduated from Cornell University in 1954, after which she attended both Harvard University and Columbia Law School, where she was the first tenured female professor. She argued 6 cases for gender before the Supreme Court. What an amazing personality. Don’t you agree? I’m in awe. Anyway, Miss Ruthy was appointed by Bill Clinton to the Supreme Court in 1993, where she spent 27 years working to eliminate gender-based stereotypes and women’s rights. Incredible!!
On her walls of chambers was an Old Testament Scripture that read,
“Justice, Justice, thou shalt persue.”
Because she was a liberal Justice, I know you all want to take this time to honor her greatness before her permanent burial takes place.
RIP, Miss Ruthy🌷
