Guess who's going to the White House?

According to Haaretz, everyone is trying to figure out who is on the guest list for the first ever White House reception in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month. We have heard that big-name Jews in the arts, sports, and other fields will be there. There have been whispers about Sandy Koufax, Judy Blume, and Dara Torres, as well as activists and scientists.

We don't know about Judy Blume or Dara Torres, but we can give you a BIG HINT about one woman attending!
