The National Museum of American Jewish History (NMAJH) is the first east coast stop for the special exhibition Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Notorious RBG requires timed-entry tickets for all visitors.The museum also will host a number of women-focused programs around the exhibition.
The exhibition traces the career of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg from trailblazer to pop-culture icon. It is the first museum retrospective about the extraordinary life of Justice Ginsburg.
Justice Ginsburg, a longtime member of NMAJH, is the second woman — and first Jewish woman — to serve on the Supreme Court. She often notes how she has been influenced by the Jewish principle tikkun olam, which she defines as “the obligation to improve the world carefully and steadily, to do one’s part to make our communities, nation, and universe more humane and more just.”
Originated by the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, and based on the New York Times best-selling book of the same name, the visually rich and entertaining exhibition explores RBG’s legacy — including her days as a student, her pioneering work as a lawyer and advocate for women’s rights, and her precedent-setting role on our nation’s highest court.
