Rabbi Mois Navon is an ASIC Department Project Manager at Mobileye – an automotive-vision-systems giant. In the early 2000s, Navon, like many in his profession, found himself out of a job following the dot-com crash. “That was a very, very bad time to be on the street because everybody was on the street,” he recalled. A former colleague told him about Mobileye, a fledgling, 15-person startup operating out of a house in Jerusalem’s Ramot neighborhood. The Los Angeles native found work there as an engineer. Soon, Navon began teaching a lunchtime Torah class for a handful of secular colleagues. Nearly 17 years — and an Intel acquisition — later, his class routinely attracts a couple of dozen employees, both religious and secular.

What are you on this earth for? Seriously, when was the last time you seriously considered that question and the implications of your answer? The truth is, most people don’t really think about their ultimate purpose in life. On this episode of Inspired Insider, you’ll hear from business leader and thought leader, Rabbi Mois Navon. In his conversation with Jeremy, Rabbi Mois opens up about what he believes happens when we die, why he refers to Israel as the “Startup Nation, the value of knowing your purpose, challenges faced along the way, and much more! You don’t want to miss a minute of this engaging episode featuring Rabbi Mois Navon’s story! 

When you think of your life – does it have a certain trajectory to it? Can you follow a clear direction that your life has taken from late childhood to your early adulthood all the way up to the present day? As he considered the question, “What happens when we die?” Rabbi Mois focused on the idea of collective consciousness. Taking his theory a step further, Rabbi Mois went on to explain that he believes there will be a review of your decisions in life and a time to consider whether you committed your life to do good or failing to do so. What do you believe about the afterlife? 

If you believe in an afterlife or not, the struggle and drive of life is a common experience that everyone can relate too. What will you do with your life? How have you identified the general thrust and purpose of your being here? While his journey hasn’t been an easy one, Rabbi Mois stresses the fact that even though all of the struggles, there has been a strong sense of purpose and resilience in his life.
