Judith Resnik

Well, to make a long story short, Judith Resnik was Jewish!

Since Judith Resnik's mother was Jewish, and in Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes her also Jewish. Her father was Jewish too.

Judith Resnik (who's full birth name was Judith Arlene Resnik) was born on April 5, 1949 in Akron, Ohio.

She was an American engineer and a NASA astronaut who died when the Space Shuttle Challenger was destroyed during the launch of mission STS-51-L.
