Get to Work
A Visual Interpretation of the 39 Avot Melacha
The thirty-nine Avot Melacha (categories of labor) constitute a list of work-related prohibitions on Sabbath as they appear in the Halacha – Jewish Law.
This diverse list is a fascinating taxonomy of human activity – ranging from the world of agriculture to the artistry of textile.
For this exhibit, thirteen illustrators were asked to offer their free-range visual interpretation to these crafts and occupations.
The result is presented here – in the town square, where droves of people rush every day to get to work.
