Jews You Should Know

Apr 23, 2019


Fertility - or its opposite - is not a subject considered by most people...until they encounter it. Today, nearly one in seven children is born through various interventions, and Jewish couples worldwide need guidance, support, and material assistance navigating the labyrinth of options and emotions involved in this process. Puah is a remarkable institution, based in Israel but with partnerships worldwide, offers the full gamut of resources, plus broader support on topics related to Jewish intimacy. Its English Speaking Section Director is Rabbi Gideon Weitzman, and he joins us on this week's episode to share his own personal background and his efforts within this life-giving organization.



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
