'May her memory be a revolution': Supporters say Rosh Hashanah brings special meaning to Ginsburg's death

  'May her memory be a revolution': Supporters say Rosh Hashanah brings special meaning to Ginsburg's death The world learned of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death as Rosh Hashanah began. Some say that is connected to righteousness in the Jewish faith.Rosh Hashanah marks the start of the Jewish New Year. When someone dies then, “it feels like that person did not get another year,” book critic Ruth Franklin told USA TODAY on Friday.

A memorial formed outside the Supreme Court after hundreds of people gathered to mourn the death of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Candles and flowers dotted the area outside of the high court starting Friday night into Saturday, with signs and other tributes thanking Ginsburg for her long legal career.

Mourners were seen singing Amazing Grace, while others chanted the mourner's Kaddish, the Jewish prayer for the dead. Ginsburg was Jewish, and her death Friday took place on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

"RBG inspired so many young women to follow their dreams and set their sights on things that so many people deemed impossible. And she made them possible," Claire Shelby, 19, told Reuters. "I think that everyone out here tonight is here tonight to honor her memory and make sure she is not tarnished in history."

Supreme Court is shorthanded but could play key role in election

  Supreme Court is shorthanded but could play key role in election The death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg adds a new layer of intrigue to a pandemic-infused election that's been challenged from Alabama to Wisconsin.On SCOTUS ‘all Democrats can do is plan retaliation’ expert says

Ginsburg died Friday due to complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer at the age of 87. Just the second woman to be nominated to the high court, she served on the Supreme Court for 27 years.

The Supreme Court said in a statement that Ginsburg died "surrounded by her family at her home in Washington, D.C."

Ginsburg was lionized by liberals for her yearslong advocacy for gender equality and staunch support for key issues like abortion rights.

Her death sets up a battle in the Senate over the future of the court, with Republicans signaling they plan to advance a nominee before the November election and Democrats maintaining that whoever wins in November should make the selection.
