Ketubahs in the news

March 13, 2017

A few weeks ago, I was quite excited to get a call from a reporter at the Jewish News Service wanting to talk about ketubahs (one of my all-time favorite topics). It turns out he was writing an article about the recent trends in ketubot that are shifting this wedding ritual from legal document to elaborate artwork. I was happy to give him my two cents!

In addition to speaking with me, reporter Jacob Kamaras also spoke with three other ketubah artists whose work I greatly admire: Morgan Friedman, Danny Azoulay and Nishima Kaplan.

The article was recently published, and it’s a great read if you’re interested in both the roots of this wedding tradition and where it’s headed next.

This past summer, I had the tremendous delight of becoming acquainted with Advah Designs, and it’s founder Sarah Resnick. If you’re in the market for a Chuppah or Tallit, then look no further than her beautiful textile shop. Not only is she an incredibly talented artist, she’s also just a fantastic human being! After spending a lovely afternoon chatting on skype, Sarah asked if she could post an interview about me and my work on her blog. Color me flattered!

So, pop on over to the Advah Designs blog to learn more about:

  • How I created my first ketubah (and what went wrong!)
  • How one ketubah quickly transformed into my full-time job (and my passion)
  • My relationships with Judaism and Quakerism
  • A sneak peek into a typical day in the life of a ketubah artist (there’s a lot more coffee and dog-snuggling than you might expect)
  • My most important advice for couples looking for the perfect ketubah
  • And more

Read the full interview here.

A huge thank you to Sarah from Advah Designs for hosting me on her little corner of the internet!
