Yes, the Chairman-designate of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System of the United States, Janet Yellin is a Jew.

Wikipedia reports, “Yellen was born to a Jewish family in Brooklyn, New York, the daughter of Anna (née Blumenthal) and Julius Yellen, a physician. She graduated from Fort Hamilton High School in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn. She graduated summa cum laude from Pembroke College (Brown University) with a degree in economics in 1967, and received her Ph.D. in economics from Yale University in 1971 for a thesis titled Employment, output and capital accumulation in an open economy: a disequilibrium approach under the supervision of James Tobin and Joseph Stiglitz.”

  1. We are Jews by blood or by joining and nothing else. Faith or degree of observance is a personnel matter. In Judaism there is no punishment for failing to follow the wisdom or dictates of any sages or Judges. For RM, as a matter of information, there is no such place or existence as “Hell” in Judaism. We are far too pragmatic and argumentative to a systems of proposed observances based on enforcement and punishment on earth or in the hereafter — thankfully. Personally, I believe Israel needs to break the hold of the Rabbi’s on any legal mater concerning the State. They need to occupy their time studying Talmud and running synagogues. This is the 21st Century CE, not !CE.
