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.
