I help frum families maximize their money and

build wealth.

Let’s face it: Money is a significant part of our lives.

It affects our opportunities, influences many of our decisions, and determines our lifestyle options.

Often, people become obsessive, doing anything for another penny, chasing a never-ending dream of wealth. Others will scorn all materialistic pursuits, embracing deliberate poverty. 

Gelt Guide is about balance.

…because the Torah’s view on money and wealth is about balance.

We accept the blessings we’re given and maximize them effectively, so we can take care of our families, give charity, and live life to its fullest.

With GeltGuide, I will teach you to earn the money you deserve, invest the money you have, and make the best financial plans for future expenses and windfalls.

Discover how.
