Jews You Should Know

May 12, 2021


Rabbi Elchonon Zohn has dedicated his life to educating about the importance and beauty of Jewish burial, and assisting communities worldwide on best practices. His singular devotion to what is known as "chessed shel emet - kindness of ultimate truth" is perhaps unrivaled in the Jewish world, and a comforting profile during these bleak times.



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
