Moriah Middle School Commemorates Life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

On Erev Rosh Hashanah, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court justice and women’s rights pioneer, succumbed to the cancer she had been fighting for years. On Monday and Tuesday, history and English teachers shared her inspiring story to their sixth, seventh and eighth grade classes. Students learned about Justice Ginsburg’s prolific career as a law professor and then jurist, as well as how she broke barriers her whole life: one of nine women in a class of 491 men at Harvard Law, her transfer and graduation from Columbia University’s law school, a lawyer arguing before the Supreme Court for equal rights and the first Jewish female justice on the highest court of the land! Students were also given a glimpse into the current legal and political discussions regarding the process to nominate and confirm a Supreme Court justice. Justice Ginsburg lived a life of service to the country and impacted America in so many ways. May her legacy live on and her memory be for a blessing.
