    What can Home Depot possibly have to do with Jewish spirituality?

    Everything, according to Ron Wolfson.

    "Now, I don't know a thing about grouting tile," Wolfson recently told the CEO of Home Depot, whom Wolfson cornered after a conference at the University of Judaism. "I walked into the store feeling nervous, and one of your people immediately put me at ease, showed me what I needed to have, demonstrated how to do it, and never made me feel like I was asking a stupid question."

    And if you can do it at Home Depot, Wolfson reasons, you can do it at Beth Anywhere.
