Work-Life Balance in Ancient Times: Why the Rabbis Left Their Homes to Study Torah

Hosted By: Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS)

Dr. Rachel Rosenthal explores stories in Ketubot on how to balance work and family to better understand how the rabbis understood their obligations to Torah, to themselves, and to their families. Part of our series, “A Wandering People: Jewish Journeys, Real and Imagined.”

This event is one session that is part of a larger series: As the pandemic surged and forced us into our homes, many of us dreamed with new intensity of being elsewhere. For Jews throughout the ages, the promises and perils of travel have been central to shaping the individual and collective experience. Notions of home and homeland have been redefined by Jewish wandering. Drawing on literary, spiritual, and historical sources and responses, JTS scholars will explore what happens when Jews—whether by force or voluntarily, whether in reality or in the imagination—travel from one place to another.
