Actor Mayim Bialik—of “Blossom” and “The Big Bang Theory” fame, and more recently, host of the popular TV game show “Jeopardy!”—and Melissa Weiss, executive editor of Jewish Insider, have been identified by Hadassah, The Women’s Zionist Organization of America, as two of the “18 American Zionist Women You Should Know.”

The group is “building bridges, making an impact and shaping the future of Zionism,” according to Hadassah.

Each is “doing essential work,” stated the organization’s CEO Naomi Adler. “They are educating Jews and non-Jews about what Zionism is and is not, and advocating for Zionism in the U.S. and around the world. Everyone who cares about Israel should know their names.”

As for Weiss, she tweeted that “it’s an honor to be included on this list.”
