Subject: Good Job!

Dear Rabbi Goldberg:

I am writing to express my gratitude to you for taking the time and effort to write Good Job: Successful Strategies for Devoping Your Work Potential.

Not only is it wonderful to see an explication of the various Pirkei Avoth that are so often quoted, and reviewed during the summer months, but also to have a practical discussion of those many Avoth that can be applied to work.

I have already personally gained a great deal from reading the book, but will also suggest that it be shared with the organizations that help Jews to find jobs (OU [NYC],  Agudah PCS [Brooklyn & Lakewood], Project Chizuk [Passaic], Jewish Vocational Service [East Orange, NJ])

At one time many of the practical issues you address were a part of both  Jewish and American corporate culture. B'EH, we should all incorporate the values and attitudes you explain so clearly and be moved to learn the practical halakhoth which apply from Seder Nezikin.

4 Greatest Gifts

What are the 4 greatest gifts we hope Hashem will grant us ?

Hint - 2 are in this weeks Parsha.

The Talmud , Nedorim 64b , says 4 are considered as dead - a poor person , leper , blind or one without children.

Tosfos explains we always need to pray to Hashem that we should not suffer from any of these.
We also need to keep thanking Hashem for all of His favors.
