Honoring Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: May Her Memory Be a Revolution!

On the first night of Rosh Hashanah, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has passed away.

Whenever a Jewish person passes, we remember them by saying “may their memory be a blessing”. We should use the same phrase in relation to Justice Ginsburg to honor her Jewish identity.

Team Imahot! Who Are the Jewish Foremothers?

In Jewish tradition, the first three generations of Abraham’s family are extremely important. Abraham was the first to hear the voice of God calling him to go to the Land of Canaan. God’s promise of making a huge nation of him was what started the Jewish nation. In a way, Abraham and Sarah were the first Jewish people.

Now is the time to recite the blessing over lighting the Shabbat candles. After it is said, one takes their hands away and sees the light anew.
