Following the death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Democratic Majority for Israel made the following statement:

“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg combined stunning moral clarity with acute legal acumen. All Americans owe her a profound debt of gratitude for her moral leadership, for the example she set as the first Jewish woman on the Supreme Court, and for her fierce advocacy of gender equality and justice for all.

“An iconic trailblazer, Justice Ginsburg worked tirelessly and successfully to make our country more just. A strong supporter of Israel, and a lifelong Zionist, she spoke of her inspiration from heroes like Emma Lazarus and Henrietta Szold.

“Her passing is a profound loss for our country, but we are confident her memory will be a blessing, especially for her family, to whom we extend our heartfelt condolences.”
