Ketubah Description

View Ketubah Details

This Ketubah was silkscreened from an original multi-layered papercut. The round shape was chosen because the circle is a perfect form; the intersecting lines in the design represent the intersecting lives of a couple. The colors were chosen because they are optimistic and vibrant. The texts decorating the Ketubah are taken from R. Yehuda Halevi and the Maharal of Prague. Shalev is the Hebrew word for serenity.
