Naama Shafir is the first Orthodox girl/woman/female (yeah, you know who I did that for) to win an NCAA (basketball) scholarship.
That is one of two things that make her unusual. The second is that she is careful about Tzniut (modesty) and wears a t-shirt under her uniform.
This has never been a problem in Ohio or Israel where she is apparently considered a star player.
But that's not good in Poland where Naama's team is due to play.
European rules require that all team players dress exactly alike, and as such, Naama was disqualified from playing.
First of all, Naama: Great Kiddush Hashem on your part.
Second, who the hell wants to go to Poland anyway. They're still just a bunch of anti-Semites there.
