"A striking combination of the wisdom of Jewish law and modern economics.

Through his mastery of many disciplines, Rabbi Levine presents a Living Torah which gives constant direction through the vicissitudes of life. This exemplifies a genuine Sanctification of G-d's name [Kiddush Hashem]." —Rabbi David Cohen, Rav of Congregation Gvul Yaabetz and Ohel Foster Homes
