POLITICS IS THEIR RELIGION: I can’t believe this is real and not a Saturday Night Live skit, but a Reform temple in New Jersey actually substituted the traditional haftorah reading on Rosh Hashanah (the additional reading from the Torah beyond the requisite portion of the week) for a reading, with the traditional haftorah tune, of some of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s writings.

Putting aside the substitution of politics for religion, I think more than anything else I’ve ever seen this makes the case that we need to reform our judicial system to eliminate the cult of personality that develops around long-serving Justices. And I say that as someone who admired Ginsburg, despite my disagreements with her.
