During the last year of her life, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg sat down with Moment editor-in-chief Nadine Epstein to discuss the Jewish women she found most inspiring. Epstein turned this into her new book RBG’s Brave and Brilliant Women: 33 Jewish Women to Inspire Everyone. This collection of biographies of brave and brilliant Jewish women was selected in collaboration with the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg and includes an introduction written by the Supreme Court justice herself. Nadine Epstein, Moment Editor & CEO, will discuss these inspirational historical role models and recount the life story of Justice Ginsburg and why these women were important to her. Please join us for a program celebrating RBG’s Brave and Brilliant Women.
