In her homage to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Rabbi Lauren Holtzblatt spoke about the persistent work of the late judiciary to bring about “real change”
“Justice did not arrive in a flash, but through tenacious perseverance all the days of her life. Real change, she said, permanent change, happens step by step,” said the rabbi.
Rabbi Holtzblatt reported on the many victories in Justice Ginsburg’s life in the face of losses and challenges, including her husband’s illness and her own cancers.
“Each time she pushed forward. She returned to work, to the bank, to the court with focus. Every time,” she said. “The pursuit of justice required resilience, perseverance and a commitment to never stop.”
“As a lawyer, she has won equality between women and men – not in a quick victory, but brick by brick, on a case-by-case basis, through careful and diligent legal practice.”
