I believe that selecting custom Ketubah (Jewish marriage contract) text and art should be more than something to check off the long wedding to-do list. It should become a place for deep engagement with what it really means to enter into commitment and partnership. I will work with you to create a beautiful, unique and meaningful partnership contract that you can look to far beyond the day of your wedding.
I offer Ketubot using traditional egalitarian Aramaic text, custom text in Hebrew and/or English and any combination of the above. I will work with you to make sure the gender identities of those in your partnership are accurately reflected in all languages.
The process of articulating and envisioning the highest dreams for your partnership should be fun, playful and joyous. It should leave you feeling more connected with each other and your excitement to build a life together. I use a process to help you choose art that reflects your unique aesthetic, and text that reflects your unique vision. Have an object, symbol or landscape that has special meaning to you? Let’s make Ketubah art out of it! Have a poem or song lyric that encapsulates your relationship to a T? Let’s make Ketubah text out of it!
