Is working a punishment or a blessing? In an ideal world, would we outsource our labor and focus exclusively on Torah study? Do the Rabbis prioritize certain professions, and if so, why? Have our views on labor shifted over time? We will study these questions through an exploration of biblical and rabbinic texts as well as through the writings of Labor-Zionist thinkers.
