Stephanie Caplan is a calligrapher, painter, illuminator and weaver. She has a strong Conservative Jewish background, including summers at camp Ramah. Stephanie studied most religions in depth while pursuing her degree in Comparative Religion at Barnard College of Columbia University some years ago, and has continued her study on her own since. Stephanie believes in a Judaism that is functional and personal. She has found that one of the best ways to integrate this philosophy into her life is to make Ketubot, for in doing so she brings beauty into her own life as well as the life of the couple using the Ketubah.
