Our friend Pamela just told us that “According to Jewish tradition, a person who dies on Rosh Hashanah, which began tonight, is a tzaddik, a person of great righteousness.” We found that very comforting. So strange to be eating these apples and honey with this sadness. pic.twitter.com/bBaWAxwjh0— Mandy Patinkin (@PatinkinMandy) September 19, 2020
She fought so hard for all of us. For many more years than she needed to. She spent a lifetime fighting for a better future for us all. For now we grieve and we lay our superhero down to rest. And then we continue her fight. We will not let you down, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. pic.twitter.com/AEJ05WLLAx— reshmasaujani (@reshmasaujani) September 18, 2020
