How do you think and solve problems using a Jewish Kop, a Jewish head? This is the fourth translated book from the American trained, South American rabbi, Nilton Bonder, Brazilian media sweetheart and the author of The Kabbalah of Envy, The Kabbalah of Food, and the Kabbalah of Money. The title says it all. Using parables, tales, and Yiddish humor, Rabbi Bonder shows how to reach the hidden truths of problems by breaking decision making down into four levels: information; understanding; wisdom; and reverence. In reverence we learn from past mistakes. From his book we learn to question and reframe the problem to better solve it. I guess you can call it the Jewish version of "Thinking out of the Box." Bonder's study is based on the four dimensions of the Alter Rebbe (1745), namely finding that which is apparent in the apparent; that which is hidden in the apparent; that which is apparent in the hidden; and that which is hidden in the hidden. If I have confused you with the preceding sentence, let me add that it is filled with a great collection of short rabbinical stories that drive home the point of using your head.
