Orthodox Jewish All Star, Ruchie Freier, First Hasidic Female Judge

Meet the Honorable Ruchie Freier, the first Hasidic woman to be elected to public office in the United States and the first Hasidic female judge. From her uphill battle to found Ezras Nashim, the first all-female EMT volunteer ambulance corps, to making challah every week despite working full-time while she was in college and law school, she has defied the odds, and the stereotypes.

“I was starting law school with six kids, and my youngest being toddler twins. So if I can do it, anyone can do it.”
