Justice Ginsburg Co-Authors A Passover Essay

Religion News Service reported yesterday on the essay written recently by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg along with Washington, D.C. Rabbi Lauren Holtzblatt as part of American Jewish World Service’s Chag v’Chesed (“Celebration and Compassion”) series in anticipation of Passover. Titled The Heroic and Visionary Women of Passover, the essay focuses on several women in the Passover story who defied Pharaoh to save Moses' life as an infant. Rabbi Holtzblatt's husband is one of Justice Ginsburg's law clerks.
