Jewlicious Festival Alumni (left-right) Eli Wikelman (Challah For Hunger), Sarah Lefton (G-dcast), and Shawn Landres (Jumpstart) enjoying the reception in honor of Jewish Heritage Month at the White House with future Jewlicious Presenter Ambassador Michael Oren. Other Jewlicious Alum spotted in Shawn’s photos include Josh Neuman (Heeb) and Aaron Bisman (JDub), looking very snazzy. In fact, I think that we will require all presenters in the future to dress so snazzy. Major yashar koach to Shawn for the Lichtenstein inspired tie, and the photo of Jewish Federations of North America President and CEO Jerry Silverman getting an autograph from the man that everyone wanted to meet— Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Kofax. As the President noted in his opening joke:

We’ve got senators and representatives. We’ve got Supreme Court justices and successful entrepreneurs, rabbinical scholars, Olympic athletes — and Sandy Koufax. Sandy and I actually have something in common — we are both lefties. He can’t pitch on Yom Kippur; I can’t pitch.
