Sarah Lefton models one of her popular T-shirts.

"I was in a bar [wearing a shirt] and
a guy walks up to me and gets right in
my face and asked what that was all
about," Verona, an inventor who co-
owns a construction company, recalled.
After a few minutes of explanation,
"He started to understand what I was
saying," Verona said.
"I felt like if I made a difference even
with just this one guy, this could be
something that could make a differ-
ence in the world."
Still in the red, the year-old Jewish
Jeans has donated $10,000 to
$15,000 to Jewish causes, Verona said.
Some funds will go to his personal
mission: finding a media spokesperson
for the American Jewish community
who can promote the image of Jews as
a peace-loving people. At the
moment, we have no response, and
left with a void, people fill in the
blanks with their own prejudices," he
said. "That's what the problem is."
Lowenstein of Jew.Lo is trying to
change perceptions, too. She sees the
Bronx-bred Jennifer Lopez as "a role
model for a new kind of sexy: ethnic,

city, powerful and real."
Her site derides Jewish celebrities
who mask their Jewishness — Winona
"Horowitz" Ryder and Natalie
"Hershlag" Portman among them —
and praises those who flaunt it, such as
film actress Amanda Peet and comedi-
an Sarah Silverman.
"Jew.Lo gives props to zaftig Jewish
figures, recognizing that a girl need
not be a stick figure to be hot, and
that a true dish loves her knish,"
Lowenstein writes.

Jewish "Hip"

Jew.Lo's line of tight-fitting T-shirts
($21, plus shipping) includes the
bosom-hugging "schwing" style and the
"boy beater," a feminine take on the
white ribbed cotton undershirt, collo-
quially known as the "wife beater."
Along with promoting robust Jewish
sex appeal, the new Jewish T-shirts
equate Jewishness with hipness. The
