Rabbi David Wirtschafter, rabbi of the Ames Jewish Congregation in Iowa and rabbi-in-residence with the Jay Phillips Center for the 2012-2013 academic year, explored ways in which Jewish scholars have probed the meaning of the Sabbath and how the digital age raises new challenges for the distinction between the work place and home, labor and rest.
