Jay’s 4 Questions
A Conversation with
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach


“America’s Rabbi” Shmuley Boteach seems to always be in the headlines — whether because of his relationships with Roseanne Barr, Oprah, and Cory Booker, or his past with Michael Jackson. Rabbi Boteach has helped redefine the role of the rabbi in today’s media-driven world. He was even one of the first rabbis in the world to use email! Rabbi Shmuley makes us think on this week’s podcast with intellectual and provocative questions like, “Are you really a VIP if the people who mean the most to you think the least of you?” Ponder that…

As the international best-selling author of 33 books (including Kosher Sex and 10 Conversations You Need To Have with Your Children), Rabbi Shmuley shares the importance of family and communal service. He talks about his memorable days at Oxford University, the impact of summer camp, and the importance of reinventing and reassessing life each and every day.
