The author argues that Jewish professionals ought not to be wary about bringing their personal values and perspectives on Judaism into their professional practice, since complete separation between the personal self and the professional self is impossible. Rather, he suggests, Jewish professionals can serve as role models, exposing clients to value and commitment systems, while still helping them to maintain their freedom of choice.
