Lift Your Legacy Podcast is a passion project focused on taking the most successful people in a Jewish sense and bringing them to the public. So many people are put on pedestals for the wrong reasons; the money, the fame, the looks. What about the other, profound demographics of success; having achieved a deep sense of purpose, living a life in service of others, building marriages and families, being healthy, and giving back?For a lot of us, we look at our leaders and spiritual personalities as removed; holy, inspiring, and great…but not like us. We figure there is some distance separating us from them. In truth, behind every towering success is a path, and clues, and a person that was willing to take that journey to become who they are.
By leveraging the intimate medium of the podcast, we can lift up the mask, get behind the curtain, and peer into the inner workings of people who live exemplary lives. And to an extent, we too can grow, become inspired, and inspire others.
Judaism and the Jewish people are the ultimate long game; we aren’t in it for us. We are in it for our children, and our children’s children. And more than ever before, we have to become the mentors for our generation.
We have it in us. We can lift our legacy.
