The "Notorious RBG" is
Celebrated in Philadelphia
By Scott L. Feldman
IT MAY BE CLICHÉ TO REFER TO SOMEONE AS
A LIVING LEGEND, ESPECIALLY WHEN THAT
INDIVIDUAL IS VERY MUCH IN THE MIDST OF HIS OR
HER PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS. Yet another first Monday
in October has come and gone with Ruth Bader Ginsberg
again hard at work along with her fellow Supreme Court
justices. The Court has a full docket of significant cases,
potentially impacting our collective lives and culture for
decades to come.

Yeah, those are indeed the things that define
a living legend.
So it is that Philadelphia is the first host of a special exhibit
entitled: "Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader
Ginsberg". The recently opened exhibit at the National
Museum of American Jewish History, at 101 S. Independence Mall East (Fifth and Market Streets) continues
through January 12, 2020. Admission to the exhibit is only
$9.00, a reference to a quote from the Supreme Court
justice: "People ask me sometimes, when - when do you
think it will be enough? When will there be enough women
on the Court? And my answer is when there are nine."

Justice Ginsberg is the second longest serving current
member of the Supreme Court, having taken the oath
of office on August 10, 1993. She has been parodied by
Saturday Night Live, been the subject of several recent
books and a full length documentary movie ("RBG") and
just last year, had her earlier life and career celebrated
on the big screen in "On the Basis of Sex" starring
Felicity Huffman.

"People ask me sometimes, when
- when do you think it will be
enough? When will there be enough
women on the Court? And my
answer is when there are nine."

The nation was collectively intrigued by her personal
friendship with Justice Antonin Scalia and often follows
her recent and varied health scares with bated breath. Her
diminutive size, soft spoken manner and distinctive and
decorative collars only add to the mystique.
