Get Out of the Cave

Gila SacksFilmed at Limmud Conference 2012

Can work  - not just self-evidently ‘good’ work, but work itself - be holy? This talk will argue that a work ethic is a necessary precondition for ethics as a whole; argue that work is perhaps the most fundamental Jewish value; and explain why it is the one which makes me most proud to be Jewish.

Gila Sacks works in the Departments for Education and Business overseeing the Government’s flagship £1.5bn apprenticeship programme. She previously worked in HM Treasury, Cabinet Office and No.10, including as Private Secretary to two PMs. Before work took over, Gila was a Limmud volunteer and learnt and taught across the community – she hopes to return to these soon!
