In a US Capitol ceremony to honor Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Rabbi Lauren Holtzblatt said the late justice had a "tenacious hope to preserve the integrity of the court."
"And Justice Ginsburg also loved the court, to which she so devoted her life. A court for all of us," Holtzblatt said.
The rabbi called on the country to carry on her legacy of justice.
"Today, we stand in sorrow and tomorrow we, the people, must carry on Justice Ginsburg's legacy. Even as our hearts are breaking, we must rise with her strength and move forward. She was our prophet, our north star, our strength for so very long. Now she must be permitted to rest after toiling so hard for every single one of us," Holtzblatt of the Adas Israel Congregation said.
Ginsburg became the first woman and first Jewish person in history to lie in state inside the US Capitol.
