Jews You Should Know

Oct 20, 2020


We don't often think of Jews as an "indigenous People," but Ateret Violet Shmuel makes the convincing argument that in fact we are. In kind, she has cultivated connections with other such Peoples, in addition to general human rights work. Ateret brings us on her her journey through punk rock, aliyah, activism and more.



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
