Herb Bridge began working in the family jewelry store as soon as he could see over the counter. Under the watchful eye of his father, Ben Bridge, he learned about business. More importantly, he learned about tzedakah, a Hebrew word meaning charity and justice, but also the obligation to do what’s right. Herb took the lessons to heart, and then some. Today he sports the Seattle nickname “Mr. Downtown,” earned through decades of philanthropy and leadership. Those same decades saw him join his brother, Bob, in growing one jewelry store to a chain of 70-plus stores in 11 states. And he became a two-star admiral, having served in WWII, Korea, and 40-plus years as a reservist. All while raising a family and supporting his wife through five major bouts of cancer. How did he do it? How can one person achieve so much while giving so much? You’ll find the answer in Building Bridges, as Herb freely shares the actions and attitudes that helped him realize the holy grail of meaningful success.
