The Legacy of RBG

Tuesday, October 13 | 7:00 p.m.

Join us as we celebrate the life and work of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

While we are poised just weeks before the presidential election, we are mourning the loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the pioneering advocate for women’s rights and the rights of all people. “One of the themes of Rosh Hashanah suggests that very righteous people would die at the very end of the year because they were needed until the very end,” said Rabbi Rick Jacobs, president of the Union for Reform Judaism.

We will pay tribute to her life and work by tracking the cases she thought were most significant from the time she founded the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project to her dissenting opinions on the Supreme Court.

Come wearing RBG t-shirts or any other clothes that represent our revered fighter for all of our rights.
