Mazal Tov! 9 Jewish Women in U.S. Congress

In the Senate, Diane Feinstein (D-California). In the House of Representatives: Jane Berlcley (D-Nevada); Susan Davis (D-California); Jane Harman (D-California); Nita Lowey (D-New York); Jan Schalcowsky (D-IUinois); Allyson Schwartz (D-Pennsylvania); Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Florida). And a special mazal tov to Gabrielle Giffords (D), the newly elected Representative from Arizona! “In my family, if you want to get something done you take it to the Jewish women relatives,” Giffords told the JTA in October. “Jewish women, by and large, know how to get things done.”
