Jews You Should Know

Oct 29, 2018


Moshe Kaplan took a circuitous route to the Land of Israel: an acclaimed physician and medical author specializing in complementary medicine in San Francisco, CA, he eventually found his way back to both Judaism and the Jewish Homeland.

In the years since, he has championed unity among Jews, and written several books aimed at this goal. Now, he runs the Be A Mentsch project, a series of initiatives promoting intra-Jewish dialogue and the performance of kind deeds without regard for differences in observance or politics.


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
