Work for food


"Rabbi Shimon ben Elazar said: Even Adam tasted food only after having worked, as it is written, 'And Gd placed him in the garden to work it and to guard it,' and then it is written, 'You may eat from any tree in the garden.'

"Rabbi Tarfon said: Gd did not dwell among the Jews until they worked, as it is written, 'And they will build a Temple for Me, and I will dwell among them.'"

(Avot d'Rabbi Natan 11:1)

Have a great day,
