Jewesses with Attitude

Get Well Soon, Ruth Bader Ginsburg!

I woke up to the news this morning that Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the first Jewish woman to become a Supreme Court Justice, had been hospitalized as a precaution, after being treated for an iron deficiency.

In February we kept Ginsburg in our thoughts as she battled (and beat) pancreatic cancer.  She underwent surgery and a precautionary round of chemotherapy in the spring, yet never missed a day of the court's public sessions.  Is there anything Justice Ginsburg can't do?

Today Justice Ginsburg is in our thoughts again.  Feel better soon!
