Jews You Should Know

May 15, 2022


Elisha Wiesel is not just the only son of legendary Holocaust Survivor Eli Wiesel, but a remarkable individual in his own right. Elisha was a long-time executive at Goldman Sachs, concluding his tenure there as Chief Technology Officer. All throughout, he has also been engaged in many aspects of communal life.

In this episode, Elisha shares honestly about his own circuitous Jewish journey, growing up in the “shadow” of world-renowned figures, and his efforts to unify the community in summer 2021 through the “NO FEAR: Rally in Solidarity with the Jewish People.”



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
