Jewish Without an 'Off' Switch

By Robert J. Saferstein

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, November 2012

Saferstein questions his immersion in the Jewish community and in Jewish communal service. He concludes that integrating Judaism into your professional and personal life complicates the work-life balance and should be dealt with carefully. However, interconnectedness and belonging, qualities that immersion in work and the community provide, also bring purpose and value to one's life.
