    This book should be taught in every 12th grade day school in the usa . There is no way to work and keep halacha without knowing these issues. Each group can issue their pasak ( halacha decision ) but one needs to know the issues before he works into the office.
    Nice to know the next generation is working hard keeping the halacha.
    For book of halacha , the book mixes in stories to keep the flow going. Real life situations for real life problems. Don't leave work without it.... Long overdue , could of used this book 30 years ago!!

    Again whether you shake or don't shake, it is good to know the issues. Blindness is not an option anymore. The most machmir or most open or makel still need to know the issues!

    The book is a masterpiece that should serve as a Shulchan Aruch for any thinking Jew in the workplace for many years to come.

    If you are a man who believes shaking a woman's hand at work is forbidden, or permissible only in the most extenuating circumstances, you will love this book!

  • Essential read for every working adult

    Making It Work is not only an enjoyable read, it is also a clear and concise handbook essential for anyone working in a modern workplace. Addressing issues like davening, yichud, shaking hands, and making a kiddish H-Shem, Rabbi Wasserman's real-life examples and entertaining anecdotes add a humorous and relatable component. It certainly has clarified and informed my role as a Jewish professional in ways I had not expected. I highly recommend it to working adults regardless of age.
