Saying Goodbye to a Hero
On the first night of Rosh Hashanah, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has passed away.
It shouldn’t have come as much of a surprise, we all knew she was battling cancer for many years and was not young anymore. And yet, there’s been so many scares over the years, from which she came out victorious, and I guess many of us started to consider her being somewhat superhuman. But, obviously, she was just a human.
I write it as I listen to an interview with her from January this year. Such fragility in her voice, yet her mind stayed as impressive as ever.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg has always emphasized how Judaism shaped her and her attitude toward justice. With Torah’s teaching of tzedek, tzedek tirdof – Justice, justice shall you pursue deeply internalized.
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. But I, as do many more, feel that “blessing” just won’t cut it. It’s too soft, too mild. To truly celebrate the legacy of Justice Ginsburg, we need to do more – in her name.
So let’s her memory be a revolution!
From Grief to Action
To honor Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, I’ve created a simple, yet I hope inspiring, designs. It is my hope that they can help you express your own sadness but also inspiration to act in her name. We know that the stakes are high. The great mile stones of women’s and minorities’s rights could be lost.We should all act to uphold RBG’s legacy and the hard work or so many others.
I hope you like some of the items I’ve created. Take a look!
Here are the designs:
