Living Lchaim: How a Chineese Restaurant Worker Ended Up at the White House

Meet Rabbi Moshe Silk. He is a Nadvorna Hasid living in a multi-functional townhouse in Borough Park, New York, balancing his deep religious commitments with a high-profile career. Silk made history as the first Hasidic Jew to hold a Senate-confirmed position in the U.S. government, serving as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for International Markets under Donald Trump. An expert in China-related trade law, he has spent significant parts of his career in China, contributing to trade negotiations and international markets. Additionally, Silk is actively involved in his community, providing pro bono legal services and working on significant translation projects to make sacred Hasidic texts available in English.
