My cousin (who is a Masorti Jew and is not so religious) wants to offer me a job. However, he requires that I work on Chol Ha’Moed. Can I take this job?
It is best not to work on chol hamoed, and work that is done then does not see a sign of blessing. However, if it will cause you to incur a loss by not taking the job, then you may take it
