Orthodox Jewish All-Stars, from the Senate to the Stadium

Allison Josephs, the woman behind

I’ve written about here before. Allison Josephs, the woman behind Jewinthecity, is a one-woman dynamo machine of kiruv (outreach), making videos and speaking all over the country about her journey to Orthodoxy and how her life has been enriched and blessed from the changes she has made.

I know Allison because when she was working at Partners in Torah after I had my first son, she was “matched” to me as my study partner, and it was from our relationship that I made some significant and really rewarding changes in my life towards a better understanding of traditional Judaism. Allison has been my sort of Jewish go-to for everything from how to handle my grandmother’s funeral to my sons’ bris to the changing expectations on me as I have become more prominent on the red carpet.

Allison’s latest project is a really sweet video featuring some amazing people you may not have known were Jewish, or people who do jobs you may not have thought Jews could do… She has an incredible collection of such “All-Stars” and if you think you know a lot about Jews, check it out. You may be surprised. In addition, if you don’t know much about Jews, check it out and take note of Alex Clare (yes, the guy who sings “Too Close“), Senator Joseph Lieberman, and a bunch of particularly inspiring amazing women doing jobs that I honestly didn’t even know religious women could do!

Enjoy and spread this little video far and wide. I think it’s a really lovely collection of experience, diversity, and perspective all in one video.
