Tzaddik

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

It has been said that in Jewish Tradition, when someone dies on Rosh Hashanah that they are a “Tzaddik,” a Righteous, Holy, and very rare Person.

“Tzaddik” comes from the Hebrew word for Justice.

NPR reporter Nina Totenberg further clarified this tradition on Twitter: “A Jewish teaching says those who die just before the Jewish new year are the ones God has held back until the last moment bc they were needed most & were the most righteous.”

What a challenge this year 2020 seems to offer.

Will we choose Hope & Faith over Despair?
