President Obama named Jacob J. Lew, an Orthodox Jew, to be his next chief of staff.
Lew will replace William Daley, who will be leaving at the end of the month.
Obama announced the personnel changes Monday at a press conference.
Lew is the director of the Office of Management and Budget, a Cabinet-level position and a post he also filled during the Clinton administration. He previously was Obama's deputy secretary of state.
