Publisher's Summary

Thou Shalt Innovate profiles wondrous Israeli innovations that are collectively changing the lives of billions of people around the world, and explores why Israeli innovators of all faiths feel compelled to make the world better. This is the story of how Israelis are helping to feed the hungry, cure the sick, protect the defenseless, and make the desert bloom. Israel is playing a disproportionate role in helping solve some of the world's biggest challenges by tapping into the nation's soul: the spirit of tikkun olam - the Jewish concept of repairing the world.  
Following Start-Up Nation's account of Israel's incredibly prolific start-up scene, Thou Shalt Innovate tells the story of how Israeli innovation is making the whole world a better place. Israel has extraordinary innovators who are bound together by their desire to save lives and find higher purpose. In a part of the world that has more than its share of darkness, these stories are rays of light.

Critic Reviews

"Thou Shalt Innovate gives the reader a refreshing glimpse at Israel's greatest natural resource, her people. It is no coincidence that the Hebrew prophet Isaiah prophesied they would be a light unto the nations. (Susan M. Michael, US director, International Christian Embassy Jerusalem)
"Want to understand the Israel of today, the nation that leads the world in problem solving? Thou shalt read Thou Shalt Innovate!" (Seth M. Siegel, author, New York Times best-seller, Let There Be Water)
"Thou Shalt Innovate is a book the world needs to pay attention to. In a rich and exhilarating narrative, Avi Jorisch outlines the roadmap for how Israelis innovate while making the world a better place, and how other countries and people can follow suit." (Yaakov Katz, editor in chief, Jeru)

Israeli Innovation Benefiting Humankind

Thou Shalt Innovate is a deep-dive into the innovation at the core of Israeli society, its historical roots, and the on-going innovation mindset that thrives throughout Israeli society. Avi Jorisch masterfully brings us example-after-example of how Israeli innovation is saving lives worldwide, enhancing the quality of life for millions, and benefiting the spectrum of society on a worldwide level. Jorisch likewise gives us the tools to relate to these titans of innovation who represent the breath and diversity of Israeli society with their revolutionary innovations. Thou Shalt Innovate is a gripping journey into what sets Israelis apart as giants among global innovators, providing clear proof that the impact of Israeli innovation goes far beyond the physically tiny nation of Israel. Anyone seeking to further his or her understanding of what drives Israeli innovation should invest a few hours delving into Jorisch's masterfully written work. Shlomo Zacks’ narration was spot on, perfect in cadence and tone, nailing the pronunciation of Hebrew words throughout the text. Overall, a great book that left me much more educated about, in awe of, and especially grateful for the gifts of Israeli innovators benefiting humankind.
