I work as a counsellor in a yeshiva. Is it permissible to work on chol ha-moed given that the work doesn’t involve any melacha? If not, is there any way to organise it, such as not being paid for the work on chol-moed and then being paid more for work done after chol ha-moed? Thanks
If you are working for your own profit than it might be an issue, however you most probably are working there for the yom tov needs of the boys, therefore it isn’t a problem. The pay is also not an issue.
