There is no denying that one of the oldest groups of people on the face of the planet are also one of the most successful; financially, spiritually, and socially. For the past 2,000 years, members of the Jewish community have been continually turned away, persecuted, and expelled from their homes, their countries, and their way of life. However, they have also been able to re-settle, re-build, and re-create their success, over and over again, showing a resiliency and dedication that is hard to find in our modern world. When Rabbi Celso Cukierkorn of Adat Achim Synagoge in Miami Beach, Florida, set out to pen his book “Secrets of Jewish Wealth Revealed,” it was to do much more than simply highlight a money making strategy. He was determined to change the lives of Jews and non-Jews alike.
“There is much more to wealth than simply a bank account with many zeros. A well-balanced, whole life is made up of wealth and success that comes from many facets; family, friends, work, faith, it is the complete person who works on each of these areas and creates the whole,” stated Rabbi Cukierkorn.
“Secrets of Jewish Wealth Revealed” was released in November 2010 and was widely acclaimed on Amazon Bestseller Lists, reaching as high as #2 in the Money Management genre, #12 in Faith, and #21 on the Money & Values list .
The book, designed to offer practical advice that has the ability to lead to prosperity, also serves as a method for improvement in all people. The text discusses a variety of subjects and works to tie in financial and social strategy with the ability to create wealth and lead a positive life founded in solid values, spirituality, and self discipline.
“I created the concept for this book as a young man. I knew I needed direction that would allow me to understand the tenets of being successful in life and also how to avoid potential roadblocks or decisions that could stand in my way,” stated Cukierkorn. “I decided to take my questions to my synagogue and look for advice from the people who I knew to be successful and upstanding members of my community. What I found was a veritable treasure trove of information. Furthermore, the advice I received was not one of ‘If you are Jewish, do this,’ rather it was fantastic life information that could be used by anyone, regardless of religious background, income level, or nationality. It was then that the basis for this book was formed.”
“With my book, I want to break stereotypes and expose all people to the information that can help them prosper in this world. It is important to me to help people live the best life they can live and I know the information in this book has the ability to be transformative; whether a reader is Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Atheist. At the end of the day, we are all people who are looking for a positive and happy life, this is what I want my book to accomplish,” stated Cukierkorn.
