Today we’re getting ready for Rosh Hashana with the amazing Rabbi Simon Jacobson, one of the most renowned Jewish scholars and speakers in the world. Rabbi Jacobson has lectured to diverse audiences on six continents and in forty states on psycho-spiritual issues and applying Jewish thought to contemporary life. His voice is rooted in the timeless teachings of Torah, yet at the same time is profoundly relevant, unique, and cutting edge. He has been interviewed on over 300 radio and TV shows, including CBS, CNN, Newsmax, PragerU, PBS, MSNBC, FOX, and NPR. And now of course, we’re privileged to have him on Jewish Money Matters Podcast. He is the author of the bestselling book “Toward a Meaningful Life” and Founding Dean of The Meaningful Life Center.
Rabbi Jacobson and I talk about the Jewish perspective on money and wealth, reconciling the idea that everything will be decreed for us during the ten days of Repentance and yet, we still have input, so to speak, on the blessings we receive every day of the year. How does that work and what does that mean for us in terms of our relationship with our Creator, as well as with the world around us? And if you’re a woman who finds herself struggling with your husband’s ability to make a living, you want to listen to Rabbi Jacobson’s advice. And what if you also want to partake in an endeavor that can contribute to the household income? Finding means for livelihood and helping our children do the same, how should we approach this? This and much more with the illustrious Rabbi Simon Jacobson.
