Ancient Talmudic wisdom and the modern pragmatism of today's boardroom meet up to find that they have much to discuss. In 'The Rabbi and the CEO', corporate insider and Columbia business professor Thomas Zweifel, Ph. D. engages in a dialogue with Rabbinic scholar Aaron L. Raskin of the congregation B'nai Avraham of Brooklyn, and from this emerges an enlightening synthesis of old vs. new and culture vs. science. Much as the discussion of Japanese culture and entrepreneurial success evoked study, debate and a wealth of literature back in the 1980s, this book will examine those underlying principles by which Jewish and non-Jewish business leaders can lead their companies while remaining true to their values. This is a fun read and a lively discussion as Dr. Zweifel and Rabbi Raskin take us on a tour of Mosaic Law to draw some unexpected conclusions. This book will help readers of all faiths learn that there is not necessarily a great distinction between running an exceptional business and leading a good life.
