Jews You Should Know

Jan 21, 2019


When a young, newly minted rabbi Emanuel Feldman stepped off the train in Atlanta, Georgia in 1952, he could not have imagined that he would change the trajectory of that Jewish community, or of his own family legacy. But a nearly 40-year rabbinical career there, augmented by a national leadership profile as educator of Tradition Journal and author of best-selling Jewish literature, cemented Rabbi Feldman as one of the most influential American rabbis of the twentieth century.

Now living in Israel and still writing, speaking and educating even decades after "retirement," Rabbi Feldman delights our listeners with his charming anecdotes and stories of a life in service of the Jewish People.



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
