“There is a movement in many American religious circles to express ancient truths in new ways; to relay something time-honored in a more modern parlance, if you will”, says Celso Cukierkorn, Author of The Bestselling Secrets of Jewish Wealth Revealed!.
Rabbi Celso Cukierkorn understands the importance of speaking in a way that people today can understand-but also of drawing from the well of historical teaching. A financial guru whose plainspoken advice and abiding belief that the traditions of the past have practical value even in today’s tumultuous economy, Rabbi Celso has drawn comparisons to such popular financial advisors as Dave Ramsey.
And that’s not insignificant. Dave Ramsey is an evangelical, as are many of his readers and radio listeners. Rabbi Celso-author of the bestselling Secrets of Jewish Wealth Revealed-comes from a rabbinic line that spans 700 years, and his work draws on thousands of years of Jewish wisdom. Yet, Rabbi Celso knows that real wisdom isn’t just applicable to one people group, but to everyone; perhaps this is why his book has found broad appeal, and why he frequently finds himself in the position of teaching evangelical Christians about healthy financial practices.
The People’s Rabbi teaches from a rich tradition, yet he believes that this tradition speaks to everyone, from all faiths and backgrounds, about how to thrive in choppy economic waters.
One of his readers, in a review posted to Amazon.com, summarizes the wide-ranging appeal of Rabbi Celso this way: “[Secrets of Jewish Wealth Revealed] This book is a “gem”. It distills the economic wisdom of thousands of years into a user friendly compendium for contemporary life. I was expecting a ‘dry’ work on money management, but discovered an easy, entertaining read. This is a very instructive work that deserves to become a classic in personal financial management. Cukierkorn’s work is infused with thousands of years of Jewish wisdom which he has made superbly accessible to anyone who needs help in managing their money and improving their life.” And yet, his teaching style, and his approach to presenting centuries-old financial wisdom in a modern setting, is distinctly his own. As financial consultant and Celso enthusiast Joseph Stango puts it, The People’s Rabbi brings “a perfect blend of financial advice, real-life humor, and biblical wisdom.”
