Jews You Should Know

Aug 12, 2019


Yehoshua Pfeffer is a community rabbi, rabbinical judge and Torah scholar; he is also a professor of law at Hebrew University, former Israeli Supreme Court intern, founder and editor of the Tzarich Iyun journal, and director of the Israeli division of the Tikvah Fund. These disparate descriptors are quite unusual for an occupant of Chareidi Israel, but position Rabbi Pfeffer uniquely as a representative to the broader world, and an agent for internal change.



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
