Who doesn’t love the book All For the Boss?
I’m re-reading it now for the Xth time, this time with my son. We are both loving the wonderful writing and story, which is full of true-to-life characters and vignettes.
Reb. Shain recently passed away but, with this book, she continues to touch people in a way that few Jewish authors in English do.
One quote caught my attention while reading yesterday. Papa (as Reb. Shain refers to her father, Rabbi Yaakov Yosef Herman, in the book) is an old man and shares some of his life wisdom with his great-grandson:
When I was a rich man and used to go to my fur shop, I did not think about business until I turned the corner where my store was located.
As a fellow Jewish entrepreneur, there is just so much I could say about that one line.
But, on second thoughts, I’ll keep my thoughts to myself.
I’d rather hear yours.
