In Avi Jorisch’s new book, we learn how Israeli innovation fulfills the prophetic call to feed the hungry, cure the sick, and help the homeless. In an interview with Jorisch, our friends at Israel21c tell us more:
Released by Gefen Publishing House on March 1, 2018, Thou Shalt Innovate provides 15 case studies of how Israelis of all faiths are “making life better for billions of people around the world and how Israeli ingenuity is helping to feed the hungry, cure the sick, and provide shelter for the homeless,” Jorisch writes. . .
“Israel is not a nation of saints but it has been seeking a higher meaning for 3,000 years,” says Jorisch. “We are fulfilling, in a very powerful way, the call of our prophets to feed the hungry and help the needy. Israel’s founding fathers were inspired by these teachings and baked it into the fabric of the society they were building. That is the essence of modern Israel.”
