In this incredible story, the author and keynote speaker, Kivi Bernhard was asked to open a big Microsoft conference.
But there was one big problem – the opening was on Shabbat.
Bernhard, a Shabbat observant Jew, said he can’t because of his religion.
Microsoft offered him more money, but Kivi refused.
They offered him an exorbitant amount but still Bernhard politely declined.
Eventually, Microsoft were forced to move the entire conference by a day so that Kivi could speak.
When billionaire owner of Microsoft heard about Bernhard’s refusal to work on Shabbat, even for vast sums of money, he quipped: “That’s what happens when you have something that money can’t buy.”
