Rabbi Evan Moffic leads the show today discussing how a comic strip creator can teach us things about ourselves that the bible tries to show us and that can help us in our investing. Many of us have certain beliefs in what kind of people we are and how we react in various situations, but they don’t hold true. Rabbi Moffic explains how we can set our lives in a way that we can respond in ways that are consistent with our beliefs, not just in an instictual lashing out.

[17:31] We don’t have any literal slaves in the United States anymore, but many of us are slaves to something in our lives, whether it’s our job, our possessions or something else
[22:58] Have a system/philosophy rather than a goal
