Richard Backer

New Direction: Left law to become a rabbi. Tipping Point: “As senior vice president for Fidelity Investments, I was traveling around the world and enjoying my job, but missing time with my family. I had always believed there was a next chapter in which I would do something very different, a career set in a more spiritual and interpersonal setting.” Best Advice Ever Received: “Life may have many chapters, and we can each change the world for the better—each in our own way.” Last Book Read: Radical Judaism.
