Models and Meanings in the History of Jewish Leadership


“With skill, wisdom, and wonderful insight, Lewis explains to us how Jewish communities have achieved a thriving adaptability. By maintaining the dynamic tension of shared power among priests, prophets, and politicians, the Jews have governed themselves with a distributed intelligence, avoiding many of the pitfalls of other cultures that grow overly dependent on like-minded elites.”

From Sanctuary to Boardroom A Jewish Approach to Leadership

From Sanctuary to Boardroom takes you on an educational journey that will widen your worldview on Jewish leadership and motivate you to put the leadership lessons into practice. Lewis does an extraordinary job culling massive amounts of knowledge into a book that is readable, illuminating, and intellectually stimulating. Lewis is a pioneer; there is no other book that examines the intersection between Judaism and leadership. Two thumbs up!”
