The White House last week named Scott Arogeti as its new liaison to the Jewish community.

Arogeti is the Bush administration’s seventh Jewish liaison. He replaces Jeremy Katz, who is leaving the White House to attend Stanford University’s business school.

Arogeti, a University of Georgia graduate, is in his mid 20s and most recently served as a staff assistant in the White House office that coordinates outreach to special interest groups. — jta
