Watson Coleman Statement on the Passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (NJ-12) issued the following statement upon on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
“I am heartbroken to learn that we’ve lost Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was a giant, contributing to legal scholarship for over half a century from her time as a law professor at Rutgers Law School and Columbia Law School. She was an advocate for women’s rights, and a living legend of women’s leadership.
"That we’ve lost this light as we mark Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and Jews in America and around the world look to the year ahead, makes her passing all the more poignant. This is a moment of mourning for our country. My husband and I will hold Justice Ginsburg and her family in our prayers.”
