Ginsburg was a non-observant Jew, attributing this to gender inequality in Jewish prayer ritual and relating it to her mother’s death.

In March 2015, Ginsburg and Rabbi Lauren Holtzblatt released an essay titled “The Heroic and Visionary Women of Passover”, an essay highlighting the roles of five key women in the saga: The text states …”
These women had a vision leading out of the darkness shrouding their world.
They were women of action, prepared to defy authority to make their vision a reality bathed in the light of the day …”
