This is the most consistently spiritual and epiphanous book available on the ethical challenges of living in a material world. The Brazilian author presents rabbinical and mystical insights into an ecology of money involving exchange, transaction, and interdependence. In chapter after chapter, Bonder spins off fresh perspectives on the meaning of wealth, poverty, ownership, charity, competition, loans, fair exchange, tips, and presents. His Kabbalistic perspective enables him to show how study, prayer, and good deeds are integral to economic behavior. Since we are "guests of God" in the world, gratitude and reverence are spiritual practices which enrich our knowledge of who we are and what is really important in our lives. And lest anyone think that The Kabbalah of Money is filled with abstractions, be forewarned that this dazzling little volume contains a treasure trove of wonderful stories by Hasidic masters.
