The purpose of this issue is to provide an overview of the special issue on practical wisdom for management from the Jewish traditions.
The guest editorial introduces the papers in this special issue, focusing in practical wisdom for management from the Jewish traditions.
The question on the relationship between the Jewish tradition and practical wisdom for management is answered in two different ways: first, providing a particular Jewish answer to managerial problems and second, presenting how Judaism can be a field of reflection learning for managerial praxis at both organizational and individual level.
The paper shows that the special issue offers insights into the value of practical wisdom of the Jewish traditions, from two particular points of view, as a guide for action and as an ethical approach to management.
