As a man of deep faith, Moshe Popack’s development was shaped at an early age by the enduring values and rich traditions of his ancestral family and their Eastern European roots.
His grandparents’ Belorussian and Polish backgrounds, experiences, and stories shared through the generations instilled in Moshe unwavering tenets of respect and celebration of humanity. These are the values central to his Jewish Orthodox faith and those which inspire his life today.
Influenced by a thoughtful spirituality, Moshe’s faith enlightens his approach to all aspects of his life. For him, faith is about relating to something greater than himself or those within his immediate sphere. This vision provides a clear sense of purpose that embodies his business philosophy, connections to family, and his responsibility to his community and country.
Guided by the notion of reserving judgment, Moshe values the common human experience we all share. His personal core value is that every single human being has worth and dignity that needs to be acknowledged, and respected. Respecting dignity honors the intrinsic humanity of every individual. It serves as the foundation for fair and just societies, fostering inclusivity and equality. It also fuels empathy, encouraging individuals to understand and appreciate diverse perspectives.
Moshe considers empathy as being fundamental to interactions with others and believes in the significance of self-actualization as well as empowered self-growth , concepts he regularly fosters in his personal and professional relationships. For this reason, Moshe considers community as our societal foundation, and engagement within communities as essential to a healthy, growing, prosperous society. Communities provide a support network that nurtures individuals and fosters a sense of belonging. Communities are the stewards of shared values and traditions, preserving the essence of our collective identity.They unite, empower, and uplift, creating bonds that transcend individual existence and weave a social fabric that sustains and enriches our lives.
Moshe relies on his strong, internal moral compass to inform his core value of integrity, the operating principle in his daily life and interaction with others. Integrity represents an unwavering commitment to honesty, ethics, and moral principles. It forms the basis of trust, builds a solid reputation, ensures accountability, and serves as a guiding compass in decision making, even in the most challenging circumstances. In a world where trust is often in limited supply, integrity emerges as a guiding force, shining a light on paths of ethical conduct and fostering a culture of authenticity and honor. The relationship between integrity and faith is profound, and the two concepts work hand-in-hand, shaping a person’s character and guiding their ethical choices.
Faith is more than a religious virtue, it is also a commitment to a belief system that promulgates honesty, accountability and truth, the essential elements of leadership. Every day is an opportunity to act in large and small ways to take responsibility for one’s actions, successes, and in particular failures. As a man of faith, Moshe Popack strives to lead by example and to navigate through his life with candor, with dedication and with purpose.
