Reviews

"Pava brings together a sensitive attention to business realities and Jewish values. His approach to those values is both traditional and modern, uniting deep traditions of Jewish humanism with modern philosophical expressions of a progressive point of view...Also of great value is the book's pedagogical focus. Pava draws on his rich experience as a teacher of business ethics in a religious educational institution to address the special challenges of such teaching. He further uses this context to illustrate the reality and complexities in his overarching theme of ethical dialogue." - Ronald M. Green, Eunice and Julian Cohen Professor for the Study of Ethics and Human Values, Director of the Ethics Institute, Dartmouth College
