Beginning with the first Jewish settler, Moses David, the important role that Windsor Jews played in the development of Ontario’s south is mirrored in this 200-year chronicle. the founding pioneer families transformed their Eastern European shtetl into a North American settlement; many individuals were involved in establishing synagogues, schools, and an organized communal structure in spite of divergent religious, political, and economic interests. Modernity and the growing influences of Zionism and Conservative/Reform Judaism challenged the traditional and leftist leanings of the community’s founders. From the outset, Jews were represented in city council, actively involved in communal organizations, and appointed to judicial posts. While its Jewish population was small, Windsor boasted Canada’s first Jewish Cabinet members, provincially and federally, in David Croll and Herb Gray. As the new millennium approached, jews faced shrinking numbers, forcing major consolidations in order to ensure their survival.
How does spirituality relate to our everyday working lives? Can the challenges of work stress, burnout, time famine, and conflict be addressed by our beliefs and spiritual practices? Lucy Reid and Fred Evers argue that spirituality in the workplace is neither a strategy to placate unhappy workers, nor an invasion by religious agenda. It is, instead, the pursuit of meaning and integrity, the attentiveness to deep questions, and the unleashing of creativity, by which our work is transformed and sanctified. Written from the perspective of a priest and a sociologist, Working With Spirit deals on the personal, corporate, and societal levels. It suggests ways to heal working relationships and integrate spiritual truths. It includes a compendium of resources to provide practical ways of engaging spirituality to meet challenges in the workplace today.
