Beinisch: My Job was My Mission

“I never saw the positions I filled as ‘jobs,’ but rather as a mission,” outgoing Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch said in a farewell speech Tuesday. She thanked her colleagues for their warm words, adding, “Judges come and judges go, and the legal system remains standing.”

During her speech Beinisch called on the government to create more positions in the court system. She ended by warning against divisiveness in Israeli society, and expressing hope “that all of our wishes will be fulfilled for the good.”
