US Secretary of State nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton reportedly has tapped two Jewish deputies for the State Department. Jacob Lew and James Steinberg will be Clinton's chief lieutenants, according to a report in Tuesday's New York Times. Lew, the director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Bill Clinton, would focus on increasing the share of financing that goes to the diplomatic corps. The Bush administration had no such position. Steinberg was a deputy national security adviser in the Clinton administration. Both positions are subject to Senate confirmation. Lew, an observant Jew, during the Clinton administration always left the office on Fridays in time to celebrate Shabbat.
