Entrepreneurs and people building new programs, organizations, and creative ventures tend to experience uniquely intense combinations of emotions: exhaustion, elation, anger, frustration, confusion, uplift. Rabbi Josh seeks to bring Jewish texts and ideas into conversation with the lived experience of those seeding innovation in their respective fields. These include passages from the Tanakh, Talmud, and Midrash; and commentaries from great Jewish thinkers – ancient and contemporary alike.
