Join Meir Panim’s campaign to “light up” Chanukah for families in need.
Televangelist Pat Robertson said Jews are too busy “polishing diamonds” to do weekend chores.
Conservative activist Rabbi Daniel Lapin appeared on the “700 Club” Monday with Robertson to discuss what makes Jews successful.
“What is it about Jewish people that make them prosper financially? You almost never find Jews tinkering with their cars on the weekends or mowing their lawns. That’s what Daniel Lapin says and there’s a very good reason for that, and it lies within the business secrets of the Bible,” Robertson said in introducing the rabbi.
Lapin was on the show to promote his book “Thou Shall Prosper,” which, according to his website, discusses “why Jews throughout the ages flourish economically,” and “how you can benefit from this Jewish wisdom.”
“When you correctly said in Jewish neighborhoods you do not find Jews lying under their cars on Sunday afternoons, no, I pay one of the best mechanics around to take care of my BMW, I’d be crazy to take my time doing it myself,” Lapin said during the interview. Robertson followed Lapin’s explanation with the crack that Jews were polishing diamonds instead of fixing their cars.
