Barbados Jewish Community

President’s Message – Yom Kippur 5781

We all aspire to do good in our lives, but it is truly rare to find people that live a righteous and inspiring life like Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“Rabbi Lauren Holtzblatt of the Conservative Jewish synagogue Adas Israel in Washington, D.C., read aloud prayers from the Torah in Hebrew and said, “To be born into a world that does not see you, that does not believe in your potential, that does not give you a path for opportunity, or a clear path for education, and despite this to be able to see beyond the world you are in to imagine that something can be different, that is the job of a prophet. And it is the rare prophet who not only imagines a new world, but also makes that new world a reality in her lifetime. This was the brilliance and vision of justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg”.

May we all be inspired to make a difference in this world and to be our best selves in 5781.
