Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had surgery today for pancreatic cancer, and I hope you’ll join me in prayers for her swift recovery.  She’s a heroine to me as a Jew, as a woman, and as a Jewish woman.

Here’s what Justice Ginsburg said in 2001 after surviving a bout with colorectal cancer:

“There is nothing like a cancer bout to make one relish the joys of
being alive. It is as though a special, zestful spice seasons my work
and days. Each thing I do comes with a heightened appreciation that I
am able to do it.”
