The Pursuit of Justice

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg reflected on her Jewish heritage before the crowd at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Days of Rememberance event yesterday, saying “The demand for justice runs through the entirety of Jewish history and Jewish tradition.”

She then spoke of the mezuzah on her chambers’ door which bears the biblical verse, “Justice, justice shall you pursue.”

“Those words,” said Ginsberg, “are ever-present reminders of what judges must do that they may thrive.”
