Dress English, Think Yiddish!
“Dress English, think Yiddish“. I heard this comment during an interview with Dan
I admit that such a reference to canny Yiddish thinking intrigued me and gave me more historical readings opportunities. A quick search online immediately clarified that Yiddish is a language used by Jews in central and eastern Europe before the Holocaust. It was originally a German dialect with words from Hebrew (the official Jewish language) and several modern languages. It is now used only by a minority of Jews.
Looking for some books, I came across one written by Howard Ward Charles: “The Money Code: Become a Millionaire With the Ancient Jewish Code”. H. W. Charles studied Biblical Studies and is the recipient of several academic awards. The title sounded a bit “pop culture” for my taste, but I gave it a try. You can read my review in this article: “The Money Code” by H.W. Charles.
I then came across a book written by Rabbie Daniel Lapin: “Business Secrets from the Bible“. This second book was definitely a dive with new eyes into the Holy book and further sparked my interest in timeless money management wisdom in ancient books. More recently, I published an investment article inspired by the Parable of the talents.
