Jews You Should Know

May 1, 2018


Taglit-Birthright Israel is perhaps the most successful modern Jewish program, having to date brought over 500,000 Diaspora Jews to visit Israel for life-changing experiences. Its CEO and professional visionary, Gidi Mark, joins us this week for a deep-dive into the inner workings of this revolutionary organization. Along the way, we learn about his past and his passion for making the Jewish world a better place.



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.
