Josephs said that she plans to continue with coordinating lists of famous Orthodox Jews, with the next one portraying Judaism’s emphasis on gemilut chesed. “The Jewish community is a wonderfully generous one and we look forward to showing all how we assist those in need,” she said.

Jew In The City’s social media revolution has not only inspired the way in which secular Jews and non-Jews view Orthodoxy’s traditions, but Josephs also serves as a kind of spiritual heroine through her mission to dissolve the noxious stereotype that Orthodox Jewish individuals are mere clones of each other who blindly kneel to an antiquated faith. Rather, as demonstrated last week, Orthodox Jews are not only pulsating with the desire to tap into their inherent wellspring of talent and potential, but also invoke their wellspring with meaning and spiritual elevation.

One of the earliest special Purims we have on record was celebrated by the Jews of Granada and Shmuel HaNagid, the eleventh-century rav, poet, soldier and statesman, and one of the most influential Jews in Muslim Spain.
