The coffin containing the remains of the late Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg arrived at the headquarters of the United States Congress this Friday morning, in a symbolic gesture that has not yet been granted to any Jewish woman or person.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, received the coffin as a “great honor”. Presidential candidate Joe Biden is among those who have come to Congress to see the Supreme Court farewell.
During a speech, Rabbi Lauren Holtzblatt hailed Ginsburg’s efforts to bring about “real change” and understood that “justice in the United States is not like lightning,” but the result of the “perseverance” of figures like the late judge. who died a week ago at the age of 87, reports CNN.
One of the most noticeable moments of the burning chapel was Ginsburg’s personal trainer Bryant Johnson, who made several plates next to the coffin.
The judge’s death has fully entered the political debate in the United States due to the vacancy in the United States Main Court. President Donald Trump will announce the name of his possible replacement this Saturday to ensure more conservative scrutiny of the court.
