10:00 AM - 11:30 AMZoom

A conversation on social justice, feminism, Jewish identity, and friendship Hosted By - Dr. Anat Balint - Program of Jewish Studies San Jose State University


Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away a year ago, but her legacy is present in the lives of all Americans and many admirers worldwide.

Congregation Shir Hadash, Congregation Beth David, and Congregation Sinai, The Jewish Studies Program at San Jose State University, and Jewish Silicon Valley invite you to a special memorial event with RBG’s longtime friend and colleague Justice Dorit Beinisch, former President of the Supreme Court of Israel, and activist Alison Brunner, CEO at Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, whose work is dedicated to promoting social justice. 

Justices Beinisch and Bader-Ginsburg enjoyed a long professional and personal relationship. When RBG passed away, Justice Beinisch wrote:

“People regularly note that she was the oldest justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, but in my eyes she was the youngest of all. She was young in spirit. Young people admired her the same way they do rock stars, and she even warmly adopted the identity of a famous rapper by means of her initials."

Three local synagogues (Congregation Shir Hadash, Congregation Beth David, and Congregation Sinai) and Jewish Silicon Valley have come together to, on a rotating basis, host educational programs that will be of interest to our collective communities. We believe there is strength in numbers and we are excited to bring in bigger and better speakers to the South Bay Jewish community.
