Jews You Should Know

Feb 4, 2020


The title of Penina Taylor's memoir - The Full Circle Jew - describes her life quite aptly. Born to a Jewish family, Penina spent nearly two decades of her early life ensconced in the worship and spreading of Christianity. Her return to her Jewish roots made for a riveting tale, but also an object lesson in spiritual seeking.



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
