Ruth Bader Ginsburg discusses the role of the Supreme Court and rule of law in today's United States, as well as her view of the Me Too movement, in a video that will be shown Tuesday night at Temple Beth Israel. The event is open to the public.

The discussion in the hourlong video will feature Ginsburg, a Supreme Court justice known for her advocacy of gender equality, and David Rubenstein, a businessman and philanthropist who co-founded The Carlyle Group. In addition to the aforementioned topics, Ginsburg talks about her career and the state of the nation.

The video is part of a pre-recorded series from the 92nd Street Y that TBI uses as an educational program. The 92nd Street Y is a community and cultural center in Manhattan, New York.

TBI is expecting about 300 or more attendees. Refreshments will be served at 7 p.m. and the video will begin 30 minutes later.

The event is free for TBI members. Non-members can pay $10 if they register in advance or $15 at the door. Call 941-383-3428 to register. It is sponsored by the Charlotte P. Graver Fund and Community Foundation of Sarasota County and dedicated to the memory of Rabbi Sanford E. Saperstein.
