    What an amazing woman who lead a full life.

    Please forgive this, although I believe she hung tough as long as possible at least partially because of Trump. Will Trump have time to put forth a nominee to the Supreme Court before the election? When (hopefully) he loses the election, will he still be able to fill, or attempt to fill, the SCOTUS seat? I like to think Judge Ginsburg was concerned about this as well.

    Please remember when speaking of Justice Ginsberg’s death not to say “rest in peace” as that has Christian origins.
    She was Jewish and we say a lot of things but a common one is “may her memory be a blessing.”
    This is pretty important right now because we’re literally celebrating our New Years today, the time when gd writes our fate for the year.
    Her passing at this time is a heartbreaking omen for many of us who are fearful of what 5781 could bring.
    Just, be gentle to Jews right now, we were already having a hard time celebrating this important holiday apart.
    My thoughts and prayers go to her family and loved ones.

    I’m hesitant to sully this discussion/tribute/remembrance of Justice Ginsburg with any talk of troll farms and the like, but I’ve seen the statement discussed in the following passage a few times on social media this morning—can you share any thoughts or context about this?

    Which is why I didn't share the Tzedek meme.
    The piece I shared came off of Jewish Twitter.
    I didn't see any snarky comments and I promise If you want snarky Jewish Twitter is where you will find it.
