Rabbi Jeffrey K. Salkin points out that in the Jewish tradition, all labor can be understood as an expression of our partnership with God in the ongoing creation of the world. As individuals consciously try to imitate God and do the right thing, they are serving as active agents of faith, courage, and hope in the world.

Salkin explores the ethical dimensions of what we do on the job, while also noting the importance of the Sabbath in the total picture. This is an invaluable book which unfurls the spiritual dimensions of work.
