Thou Shalt Innovate: How Israeli Ingenuity Repairs the World is history book by Avi Jorisch, published in 2018.
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 a compulsion to make the world better. Featured stories include Israeli ingenuity in agriculture, medicine, water, and defense, but the heart and soul of this book revolves around the global impact of world changing innovations and the people behind them. It is the collective story of how Israelis are helping to feed the hungry, cure the sick and provide shelter for the homeless. Israel is playing 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. There is no single narrative that fully describes the State of Israel. But there is also no denying that Israel has extraordinary innovators who are bound together not by religion, money or stature, but rather by their desire to save lives and find higher purpose. Thou Shalt Innovate is the story of Israelis who exude light in the face of the darkness, about people who have chosen hope and healing over death and destruction. These stories are rays of light coming from an otherwise depressingpart of the world. It is the ‘innovation soup for the soul’.
