The President and First Lady have invited Basketball Hall-of-Famer Nancy Lieberman to the White House in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month.

Lieberman will join other prominent Jewish Americans at a reception with President Obama and his family on May 27.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for me and I look forward to visiting the White House and President Obama,” Lieberman commented. “To share this experience with a fellow basketball lover like President Obama makes it even more exciting for me. My heritage is very important to me and I never want to forget from where I came.”

President Obama has continued the tradition President George W. Bush started of proclaiming May as Jewish American Heritage Month. Jewish Americans from all walks of life were invited to the reception, including members of Congress, business leaders, military veterans and astronauts.

“The Jewish American story is an essential chapter of the American narrative,” the President said in a press release. “As leaders in every facet of American life – from athletics, entertainment and the arts to academia, business, government and our armed forces – Jewish Americans have shaped our Nation and helped steer the course of our history.”

Lieberman, a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, twice made Olympic teams, winning a silver medal as an 18-year-old in 1976. In 1980, she withdrew from the Olympic squad in support President Jimmy Carter’s boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow.

While playing for Old Dominion University between her two Olympic stints, Lieberman twice won the Wade Trophy, awarded annually to the national player of the year in college women’s basketball.
