Jews You Should Know

Apr 29, 2019


Moe Mernick has been an actor, author, motivational speaker, entrepreneur, Torah teacher and more in his life and career. These accomplishments would be exceptional for anyone, but far more so for one who suffered his whole life from a debilitating stutter. Moe eventually came to see this challenge as a mountain to conquer, and in fact became the catalyst for his later achievements. He chronicled this journey in his 2016 book, The Gift of Stuttering, and continues to write, create, connect and inspire around the world.



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
