Amar’e Stoudemire, Brooklyn Nets’ assistant coach; Leslie Berland, chief marketing officer of Twitter; Jordan Gorfinkel, aka Gorf, the creator of “Batman: The Dark Knight” and contributor at The Jewish Link; and Sharon Mazel, bestselling co-author of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” are among 10 individuals who have been named the seventh class of Orthodox Jewish All-Stars by Jew in the City, the organization dedicated to rebranding Orthodox Jews and Judaism to the world through digital media.

This diverse and accomplished group also includes Assistant U.S. Treasury Secretary Mitchell Silk; Jeff Astrof, Hollywood screenwriter of “Friends”; Shifra Kolsky, SVP, controller and chief accounting officer at Discover; Ari Sacher, a primary engineer of the Iron Dome Missile Defense System; Morry Weiss, chairman and former CEO of American Greetings; and Aaron Twerski, former dean, Hofstra Law School.

Jew in the City, a nonprofit founded in 2007 by Allison Josephs, reverses negative associations about religious Jews by highlighting an approach based on kindness, tolerance, sincerity and critical thinking, and makes engaging and meaningful Orthodox Judaism known and accessible. Jew in the City is reshaping the way the world views Orthodox Jews and Judaism. Our team publicizes the message that Orthodox Jews can be funny, approachable, educated, pro-women and open-minded—and that Orthodox Judaism links the Jewish people to a deep and beautiful heritage that is just as relevant today as it ever was. With a mix of light humor and rich content, Jew in the City explores controversial topics in a pleasant and easy-to-understand fashion, appealing to anyone who is curious to learn more about Orthodox Jews and observant Judaism, whether they are Jewish or not.
