Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s commitment to her Jewish identity has long been documented. Now she will be showing it in the form of her favorite accessory— a scrunchie.
Rabbi Yael Buechler, founder of Midrash Manicures, a company dedicated to “creative religious expression,” recently sent RBG a Hanukkah scrunchie to add to her collection, according to Hey Alma.
To Buechler’s surprise, Ginsburg sent a thank-you note to show her appreciation of the festive hair accessory.
“My dear Rabbi: Thank you for today’s surprise, a scrunchie I will wear not only at Hanukkah, but year round,” the 85-year-old wrote.
RBG’s scrunchie collection “is not as large as my [judicial] collar” collection, but they are “catching up,” she told the Wall Street Journal of the quintessential 90s accessory that has since made a comeback.
Those who see the Supreme Court Justice as a supreme fashion inspiration can buy the scrunchie for $6.50 here.
