This volume is a collection of essays dealing with the nature and value of work in Jewish thought. It tackles such issues as productivity, occupational safety, public employment and the right to organize, comparing the Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, and secular approaches. It also considers strictly Jewish issues such as the tension between material self-sufficiency vs. full-time study at public expense.
