Treasury Secretary Lew, Nobel laureate Aumann among 2013 ‘Orthodox Jewish All Stars’

( Jew in the City, an organization working to connect Orthodox Judaism with digital media, has named 10 individuals as 2013’s Orthodox Jewish All Stars.” Among the winners are U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, Nobel laureate in economics Robert Aumann, and Naama Shafir, the first Orthodox female professional basketball player.

The winners will honored at a red carpet event on Nov. 24, coinciding with both the first day of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving. “There is a common misconception that being an Orthodox Jew means you don't have many career options… Jew in the City is building awareness about a community that otherwise gets depicted as extreme and reclusive, and rarely is presented with any nuance,” said Allison Josephs, award-winning Jewish author and founder of Jew in the City.
