Making It Work
A Practical Guide To Halachah In The Workplace
Rabbi Ari Wasserman
Distributed by Feldheim / 524 pp.
I'm just blown away. The "Ari Wasserman" label has simply proven itself once more as being synonymous with excellence in Torah, primarily Halachic, literature.
In this latest volume R' Ari, who should be everyone's role model of a "working Ben-Torah," presents all the thorny issues that Orthodox Jews must face in the workplace. Some of the issues dealt with include yichud, shaking hands with the opposite sex, holiday parties, dina d'malchusa dina, honesty when interviewing, entering non-Kosher restaurants, and much more. Every issue includes real-life stories, mussar, hashkafa, and of course, the halachic issues.
This book is unprecedented in it's style, presentation, and "halachic honesty," presenting all the major halachic views from all ends of the Orthodox spectrum. There may not be a more well-rounded advanced English halachic sefer that is so easy to read and understand. A must-have.
BONUS: "Devarim" of R' Ari's "Hegyonei Haparsha" (Feldheim/ Heb.) is out! Topics include: Eating in public, bishul akum, business competition, exemptions from minyan, releasing terrorists, Dina D'malcuta in Israel, secular court, and much much more! A really exciting volume.
