Korenblit is the author of “Until We Meet Again: A True Story of Love and Survival in the Holocaust.”

He is a co-founder of the Respect Diversity Foundation (RDF), a non-profit, tax-exempt educational organization, founded to teach respect, tolerance and acceptance for all people. He worked 19 years for the Close Up Foundation, an educational organization in Washington, D.C. He directed Close Up’s Television and Video Department, where he produced the Ace Award winning television series which aired on the Cable Satellite Public Affairs Network.

He produced numerous award-winning documentaries including Democracy and Rights about the 1957 desegregation of Little Rock High School.

Former Oklahoma State Regent Carl Renfro and the late Carolyn Renfro established the Carl and Carolyn Renfro Endowed Lectureship Program with a gift in 2006. The primary purpose of the endowment is to provide support to cultivate and enhance the cultural and community enrichment offerings in northern Oklahoma to include lecture and performance series at Northern Oklahoma College Tonkawa and in the Ponca City area.
