I found Mr. Schultz story of his visit to Rabbi Finkel extremely moving. I still feel G-d's Spirit as I write this note of thanks. I will hear these words ringing in my ears for some time to come. I can tell. America can use all the role models of goodness and trust in community as it can get. Thank you for passing it on.

This article is exactly what I needed to read right now. The innocence yet keenness is profound regarding a famous U.S. citizen's pathway to financial security. We can all appreciate Starbuck's Chai Tea even more than before. But this story doesn't speak to the eminence of friendship, though possibly behind closed doors, that is a key ingredient to making sure "we never forget, Hitler's name should be wiped out forever, and there will never again be opportunity for another Holocaust." It's not likely, though possible, that a person's ability to economically thrive will occur without support. The combination of a heavy burden of fear of the unknown, forced isolation, yet a love and desire for commradery and joining in unity to "rise to the occasion" cannot have a successful outcome without the proper human and nonhuman environment.

Thank you for sharing this story.
Mr. Schultz is a true "Mensch"; I certainly do appreciate his insight and in a way do understand the basis of his business strategy which dovetails with Maslov's hierchy of needs.
We all have a need to feel as an important part of something greater than ourselves.
This also does say quite a bit about Judaism, our communal identity and each of our responsibilities to that community.
Good Shabbos. - M. P. -0/1-/2002
