Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom

Yesterday after a fabulous keynote, I picked up a copy of Mitch Albom’s new book “Have a Little Faith.” I had him sign it for Henry Oertelt, "Mazel Tov on your 3rd honorary doctorate and An Unbroken Chain, Mitch Albom." Dr. Oertelt will be getting his degree from St. Olaf in Minnesota on October 15.

Mitch and I actually have a lot in common. We both work closely with our Rabbis, have both founded non profits, and both worked with a guy named Henry. His Henry is now a preacher, a former drug dealer and convict who is trying to rebuild his church in Michigan; my Henry, an 88 year old Holocaust Survivor and author of An Unbroken Chain, our charity, 6M for 6M is about raising six million dollars to make a film about his life story and raise awareness for acceptance at the same people by merely asking for $1 per person.
