Good Friday Jewcers!  We’ve come to the end of another week-long ride on the Wall Street roller-coaster.  Thankfully, this week on Jewcy the authors of Jewish Wisdom for Business Success advised you to sit in the back and bring a bag.

Rabbi Levi Brackman graciously included some economic Dvar Torah in each of his posts.  He began talking about how the media and other commentators misconstrued the point of his book.  He cleared the air with some pertinent facts proving that the controversial relationship between Jews and money isn’t that negative after all.  Then he gave us some top-of-the-line, Jewish wisdom for getting through the recession. Finally, Rabbi Brackman broke down the candidates’ tax plan through the eyes of a Torah scholar, and came to some startling conclusions!

Sam Jaffe kicked off the week relating a touching, symbolic story of a salamander’s recovery, taught us how there’s more than you think in the name of a business, wrote a letter to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, took another look at Jewish money-lending, and told us why Karl Marx is not even close to Jewish.

Next week, we’ll welcome Jonathan Garfinkel, author of Ambivalence: Adventures in Israel and Palestine, and Rabbi Robert Levine, author of What God Can Do for You Now.  Stay tuned!
