Jews You Should Know

Jul 14, 2021


Chuck Lichtman grew up on the hard-scrabble streets of Gary, Indiana, where he faced pronounced anti-Semitism that helped shaped his life path. He became a fierce advocate for civil rights - notably as the "Hanging Chads" attorney in the 2000 election, and eventually authored several books. His latest, due out in September 2021, is a thriller called "The Sword of David," and synthesizes his love of action with his passion for the Holy Land and yearning for peace in a difficult region.



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
