Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg attended a memorial in Washington D.C. for the late Israeli author Amos Oz.

The event was held on Sunday at Temple Sinai in Washington, and was co-sponsored by several Jewish organizations including the New Israel Fund, Americans for Peace Now and J Street.

It was a rare public appearance by Ginsburg, 86, who has been recovering from cancer surgery. She did not make any public statements at the event.

The author’s daughter, Faina Oz-Salzberger, tweeted a photo of her and Ginsburg, who reportedly told Oz-Saltzberger that she attended the event because she is a fan of the writing of Amos Oz.

“Ruth Bader Ginsburg did us the honour of attending the Amos Oz memorial event at @templesinaito today. A very moving day,” Oz-Salzberger tweeted.

Speakers included Oz-Salzberger; J Street’s Jeremy Ben-Ami; New York Times columnist Roger Cohen; and American-Israeli actress and director Natalie Portman.

Oz died in December at the age of 79, after a battle with cancer.
