Yet another reason to love Notorious RBG

BSBR050101500LLast week, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, with Rabbi Lauren Holtzblatt, released a short feminist essay on Passover. The essay looks at the story through the eyes of five women most closely involved:

Retelling the heroic stories of Yocheved, Shifra, Puah, Miriam and Batya reminds our daughters that with vision and the courage to act, they can carry forward the tradition those intrepid women launched.

While there is much light in today’s world, there remains in our universe disheartening darkness, inhumanity spawned by ignorance and hate. We see horrific examples in the Middle East, parts of Africa, and Ukraine. The Passover story recalls to all of us—women and men—that with vision and action we can join hands with others of like mind, kindling lights along paths leading out of the terrifying darkness.

Passover begins the evening of Friday, April 3. And thanks, Jac, for sharing this.
