Ketuv

Ketuv is closing up shop! Last orders should be placed by September 1st, 2017.

Hello, world! Here we are!

posted by Arielle Angel on August 2, 2011

We’re Ketuv, a new business offering a fine art option in ketubahs.

For the uninitiated, a ketubah is a decorative Jewish marriage contract, signed at the wedding to unite the couple. But it’s not just for Jews anymore. In recent years, the ketubah has become a powerful statement of partnership for all couples.

We got to thinking: why do most ketubahs look just the same when there are so many unique couples, and so many talented artists?

Ketuv’s stand-out launching line features ketubahs by a diverse and innovative group of artists, with dynamic careers outside the Judaica and commercial sphere. We guide each artist in applying their studio practice to the ketubah tradition, without compromising their aesthetic. The result is a stand-alone piece of art, whether it be a limited edition print or one-of-a-kind work on paper.

We invite you to check out our website to learn more about us, our artists, and our mission. Visit our shop to browse close to 30 limited edition prints by over 25 emerging and mid-career artists. Most of them are available on the site for custom commissions. Among the options, you’ll find wedding and anniversary artwork for same-sex, interfaith, non-denominational and non-Jewish couples, in addition to ketubahs for Jewish couples of all denominations.

GET INVOLVED!

As a business, we’re relying on our community to help us spread the word. We hope you’ll forward this post widely:

Press: Want to write a feature on Ketuv? Contact us at press@ketuv.com and we’ll send you our press kit.

By taking an inclusive approach to the ketubah text, and nestling it within a fresh piece of contemporary artwork, Ketuv is renovating the ancient tradition for the next generation.

Enjoy!

Anniversary Ketubah/Vow Renewal Text

posted by Arielle Angel on July 1, 2011

Our anniversary ketubahs are a unique way to commemorate the wedding day, whether you and your partner are renewing your vows or you have reached a milestone anniversary. An anniversary ketubah can be a great anniversary gift from one partner to another, or a great anniversary gift for parents, grandparents or close friends.

Our anniversary texts do not have a place for signatures, but signature lines can be requested. This text is secular nature and is appropriate for Jewish, interfaith or non-Jewish couples.

You can browse our anniversary ketubot in our ketubah shop.
