AT CEREMONIES held at the Supreme Court building in the morning and at the President’s Residence in the afternoon, Miriam Naor – the 11th president of the Supreme Court, the third to be born in Israel, the second woman to hold the title, and first and so far the only of all Supreme Court presidents to be born in Jerusalem – stepped into the world of retirement on Thursday, the day on which she celebrated her 70th birthday.

Although gender equality remains a bone of contention in the country, in the court system, women do not retire at an earlier age than men, and neither men nor women are forced to retire while still in their sixties. Retirement age for both is 70.
