Take One

Kiddushin 47 and 48

The value of crafts

September 29, 2023

In today’s Talmud pages, Kiddushin 47 and 48, the rabbis begin by discussing when a wage needs to be paid, and whether a betrothal based on a loan is legitimate, but then move on to discuss the difference that should be considered when dealing with an artist, who in their work has not merely provided a service, but created something of beauty. Tablet Studios General Manager, and co-host of the Beautifully Jewish segment of Unorthodox, Tanya Singer joins us to discuss whether creating art is more than just doing a job, and how creative artists need to be valued appropriately. Does an artist become a partial owner through their artistic work? Listen and find out.
