Jews You Should Know

Mar 31, 2020


Sharon Shalom's odyssey from Ethiopia to Sudan and ultimately to Israel in many ways embodies the story of Jewish history writ large. This doctor, philosopher and consummate Jewish leader offers a story of hope, persistence and achievement that represents so much of the broader Jewish journey.



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
