    Jews are meant to be workers according to the Torah, or there would not be so many of the halachos relating to business practices and farming. However we also see the fact that Zevulun, the businessman, according to his father Yaakov Avinu, is meant to support Yissachar in his learning. So that is IMO the primary source for this. (It does not however, say Yissachar CANNOT take a job. You wanted a source, though).

    “Don’t you agree, considering there are sources for both derechs, that each to his own, we should all respect and honor whatever shitta someone else follows (for himself)?”

    This should be true in general.

    Golfer – Not really. </shrug> But PAA’s Brute Force Block Text strategy is certainly useful, and there are some excellent Mareh Mekomos for those who care…

    “Jews are meant to be workers according to the Torah, or there would not be so many of the halachos relating to business practices and farming.”

    Indeed the way a Jew can observe the most mitzvot in our times is to be a farmer in the Land of Israel. I find it quite surprising that so few frum Jews want to do that.
