Jews You Should Know

May 28, 2019


Beatie Deutsch is not only the "fastest woman in Israel," but also the fastest to attribute her success to the One Above. As an Orthodox woman and mother of five, Beatie transcends stereotypes and is on a mission to transform public perception of what the women of her community can accomplish, while preserving and promoting her most sacred values. An aspiring Olympian, Beatie is now sponsored by the Israel government and Nike, and has been featured in countless media outlets for her groundbreaking race times and victories, recently becoming the first Israeli woman to win an international race, in Riga, Latvia. She does it all in traditional garb, and a very un-traditional approach to spreading Jewish awareness.



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
