Why are Jews doing so well?
What is the secret sauce of the Jewish people that explains their overrepresentation in so many arenas?
The Jewish people make up less than a quarter of one percent of the world’s population. As Mark Twain comments, “The Jew shouldn’t be talked about much” and yet we cannot escape the fact that the Jewish people have contributed so much to our world.
Whatever your definition of success, the Jew is overrepresented. Jewish contributions to religion, medicine, technology and other sciences, law and finance are out of proportion to the smallness of their numbers.
How to explain the phenomenon of over-representation of the Jewish people in so many different arenas? How do we understand Jewish success? In the Zero Percent Podcast, we take a look at the huge impact a little person has had in improving and impacting our daily lives.
Most importantly, we will uncover the black box that leads to Jewish success, revealing the secret sauce that produced all of these amazing achievements.
Join Menachem Lehrfield every Wednesday as we explore another piece of this remarkable puzzle.
