Late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has received a fitting tribute — a tombstone engraved with the traditional seal of the nation’s highest court — ahead of the one-year anniversary of her death.
According to Jewish tradition, Ginsburg’s headstone would have been officially unveiled by her first yahrzeit, or the anniversary of her death, which is Monday.
The tombstone features the US Supreme Court seal with a single star beneath an eagle’s claws — symbolizing the US Constitution’s creation of “one Supreme Court.”
Below on her gravestone, Ginsburg is remembered as an associate justice who served on the bench of the highest court from 1993 to her death in September from complications of metastatic pancreas cancer at age 87.
The gravestones of some other late justices also bear the high court’s historic seal.
