Jews You Should Know

Jul 29, 2020


Leah Aharoni is a business consultant, long-time Israeli olah, mother of seven, and much more. She is also the founder of Women For the Wall, a grassroots activist organization promoting traditional prayer roles at Western Wall. Her story is fascinating and, to some, perhaps provocative. Regardless of one's perspective, Leah forces us to think about how Israeli society functions, and how Jewish debate should be approached in a modern world.



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
