Faith, social activism and a bit of ‘mazel’ made Noah’s Bagels founder a success

The Yeshiva students were eager to hear every morsel of advice. Raised in Brooking, Mass., Alper told the students more than once that he grew up in a Jewish but secular household. However, it was the influence of a father, who was definitely spiritual but somewhat of a nonconformist when it came to any organized religion, that shaped his life.
