Prof. Ruth Gavison Death – Dead | Passed Away – Obituary

Ruth Gavison Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Ruth Gavison.

Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.

This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.

The International Rabbinic Fellowship expresses its sadness on the passing of Prof. Ruth Gavison, one of Israel’s leading jurists and legal minds. Prof. Gavison was a thoughtful, passionate legal scholar, whose research focused on civil rights, democracy and constitutional law. She was a recipient of the Israel Prize whose committee wrote that Prof. Gavison “deals deeply and courageously with shaping the identity of the State of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.”

A committed Zionist as well as an advocate for human rights, she oppossed excessive judicial activism looking to the Knesset to take responsibility for legislating and working through challenging issues.

She tirelessly worked to bridge some of the schisms in Israeli society most famously between religious and secular Jews in drafting together with Rabbi Yaacov Medan a new mutually agreed compact on issues of religion and state reflecting new realities and a minimum of religious coercion. This covenant represents the spirit of compromise and mutual respect between various sectors of the Jewish people that the IRF supports and sees as the direction to follow in the future to ensure a thriving and cohesive society in Israel.

We mourn the passing of the great Prof. Ruth Gavison, one of Israel’s top legal figures and ACRI’s former chairperson and president.

Ruthie was a key figure in shaping ACRI’s character and direction since the early 1980’s, and her impact on the human rights discourse in Israel is difficult to put into words.

She said of ACRI: “Our main achievement is that we have succeeded in establishing a professional, prestigious and stable organization. Only the Association for Civil Rights has taken on the vision of the whole of human rights in its entirety.”

We continue in this spirit and will always remember Ruthie for it.

On Saturday, Israel lost Professor Ruth Gavison, one of the country’s most original thinkers and innovative intellectuals.

An Israel Prize laureate and a former Senior Fellow at IDI, Prof. Gavison was involved in many ambitious projects aimed at bettering Israeli society including the Gavison-Meidan Covenant which sought to formulate agreed upon principles relating to the always tense relations between religion and state.

In a fitting tribute, Prof. Yedidia Z. Stern, a Senior Fellow at IDI, wrote of the last project they worked on together and noted that Prof. Gavison was “a moral compass and a strategic asset for Israeli society.”

In one of their last correspondences, Prof. Gavison movingly wrote to Prof. Stern that: “Israeli society is currently in crisis, but its social and political roots are more robust and resilient than the polarizing discourse.”

May her memory be a blessing.

Deep sadness at the parting of Israel Prize recipient, Prof. Ruth Gavison.A constitutional law scholar, committed to the delicate balance between Israel’s Jewish & democratic foundational values,her legacy serves as inspiration to continued responsibility.

Saddened to learn of the passing of Prof. Ruth Gavison. She taught me and generations of first year @HujiLawOfficial students the philosophy of law, the very basic ideals of the Rule of Law. She walked the walk, in academia and in public life in Israel.

My law school mentor, legal philosopher and scholarly giant Ruth Gavison, is gone. She taught me jurisprudence, law and society, and law and politics, but the most important thing she taught me was that grownups should not be afraid of monsters.

Ruth was at the same time a woman of peace and a fighter, very tough and very kind. A great scholar (her article on privacy in Yale Law Journal is a modern classic) and a brave activist. An unusual human being. Farewell, Ruth.

Mourning Prof. Ruth Gavison, one of Israel’s top legal figures & ACRI’s former president. We, too, are her legacy, as in her words “only ACRI has taken on the vision of the whole of human rights in its entirety.” We will miss her deeply.

We mourn the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Prof. Ruth Gavison. An intellectual giant and a fearless activist, Ruthie served as founding Chair of the Center’s Academic Committee, and remained engaged in its work and supportive throughout.Our hearts go out to her family
