    Remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Conversation With Two of Her Law Clerks
    Wednesday, Dec 2nd 8:30p to 9:30p
    With the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we have lost one of our greatest legal minds. As a pathbreaking advocate for women's rights and as a judge for forty years, including twenty-seven years on the Supreme Court, she had a profound influence on the law and on the nation. What was she like as a person? What role did Judaism play in RBG's life and thought? What was it like to work for her? How did she feel about becoming a pop-culture icon? How will she be remembered? To explore these questions and more, Esther Fuchs will moderate a conversation with two of RBG's former law clerks, Aaron Saiger and David Schizer.
