Jews You Should Know

Nov 5, 2019


When a high school-aged Chaya Fishman founded a creative arts day camp for younger girls in her community, she displayed signs of her future entrepreneurial credentials. Today she works professionally in corporate law, but along the way founded the Jewish Women's Entrepreneur (JWE), a social venture supporting Jewish female business owners. Through mentorship, conferences and events around the country, Chaya's non-profit has offered know-how and support to scores of women at every level of business development.



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
