      Beinisch Bids Teary Farewell to Bench

      Dorit Beinisch formally ended her term as Supreme Court judge and as the court's president Tuesday, in an emotional farewell ceremony attended by the judiciary's top figures. Her replacement, Judge Asher Grunis, is to be sworn in later in the day. Beinisch read out one of her final verdicts, in which she ruled that ownership of a car does not disqualify a person from eligibility for National Insurance Institute welfare stipends.
