The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, with partner PJ Library has announced a collaboration with Broadway star Tovah Feldshuh to commemorate Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s life one year after her death. Feldshuh, who originated the role of Ginsburg on stage in the play “Sisters-in-Law,” will bring her talent to the smallest screen in an all-ages read-along of Debbie Levy’s “I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark.” The program will be on Sept. 17th and will reintroduce footage of Ginsburg herself reading excerpts from the book. The program is offered free of charge and may be viewed for one month after the program’s debut.
The program will also feature a never-released performance of “Bach’s Air on the G String,” performed by an Israel Philharmonic string quartet. Ginsburg was -known for her lifelong love of classical music and was an enthusiastic and dedicated opera aficionado.
Once, when asked her personal feelings about the book written in her name, Ginsburg said, “It’s a delightful book written by a lawyer with the aid of a wonderful illustrator. And I just like it very much—it makes me smile.”
