Jews You Should Know

Apr 17, 2018


Any supporter of Israel will recognize the name Ron Dermer. As Israel's ambassador to the United States, he has represented the State and its Prime Minister - his long-time mentor Benjamin Netanyahu - with tremendous skill and passion.

In this interview, Ambassador Dermer shares his personal story as a youngster in Miami, Florida, a college student at the University of Pennsylvania, a graduate student at Oxford, and a political operative working in Israel under Natan Sharansky and eventually Netanyahu himself. He thoroughly expresses what Israel means to him, and how his current distinguished role allows him to broadcast those sentiments to the world on a daily basis.



Jews You Should Know introduces the broader community to interesting and inspiring Jewish men and women making a difference in our world. Some are already famous, some not yet so. But each is a Jew You Should Know.

The host, Rabbi Ari Koretzky, is Executive Director of MEOR Maryland (, a premier Jewish outreach and educational organization. MEOR operates nationally on twenty campuses and in Manhattan; visit the national website at
