A middle school teacher, a TEDx speaker, and a Rabbi walk into a bar… Bad joke, but all three describe this weeks excellent guest: Rabbi Elchanan Poupko. Teaching in New York City, Rabbi Poupko has written and spoken at TEDx on the topic of political polarization, and its ever growing threat to our culture. In this episode, Poupko talks about education and reminds us that individuals from diverse backgrounds, who might never otherwise interact, come together through the exchange of goods and services every day, making business a positive force helping mend our divided nation.
