Debbie Wasserman Schultz (September 27, 1966)

From the official biography of Congressional Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, representing the 20th District of Florida since 2005:
"The first Jewish Congresswoman ever elected from Florida, Rep. Wasserman Schultz, introduced a resolution, which passed the House of Representatives and called on the President to declare an annual Jewish American Heritage Month. The President subsequently did so, with the inaugural month in May, 2006. Since then, Presidents have proclaimed Jewish American Heritage Month annually." -- Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Biography
