This book challenges us to take a broad and ethical view of economic behavior, which includes all forms of exchange and human interaction, from how we spend our money to how we fulfill our role as responsible human beings in a global economic framework. Drawing on Jewish ethical teachings, mystical lore, and tales of the Hasidic masters, Bonder explores a wide range of subjects including competition, partnerships, contracts, loans and interest, tipping, and giving gifts.


"A work of depth that requires contemplative reading and rereading. Bonder demonstrates great creativity in bridging ideas that are abstract and practical, religious and secular, traditional and modern."— Jewish Week

"One of the best books available on the ethical challenges of living in a material world. . . . Fresh perspectives on the meaning of wealth, poverty, ownership, charity, competition, loans, fair exchange, tips and presents."— Body Mind Spirit

"Bonder explodes the stereotypes about Jews and money and encourages Jews to examine their traditional teachings to discover ways that economic behavior and personal responsibility are intertwined. . . . Bonder's book is filled with penetrating insights derived from the simple recollection that, in Judaism, teachings about money have always been about more than just money."—Publishers Weekly Religion Bookline

"Compelling and innovative."—Edgar M. Bronfman, President, World Jewish Congress

"Bonder frees money from the taint of filthy lucre and points to its uses in the growth and enhancement of souls in the marketplace."—Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, author of From Aging to Sage-ing
