Q: I am an interior designer. I love my work, but sometimes feel that I am only dealing with the superficial aspects of life, while my soul longs for inner meaning. Should I choose a different career?
A: You can do interior design work with the intentions of Torah and Kabbalah, and also explain the inner meanings of your designs to your clients. Obviously, this requires deep knowledge of Torah and Kabbalah. According to Chassidut, interior design, as well as any other art that relates to the inner dimension, corresponds to the name Esther, which means “hidden.”
