Something New Under The Sun
In the classic book of Ecclesiastes, King David’s wisest son exclaims, “There is nothing new under the sun!” When I brought this up with the This Is Not A Ketubah team it really seemed to speak to us. Every day we try to come up with brand new, exciting, modern Ketubah designs for our couples. Our custom Ketubot option even lets us channel the creative juices of fiancés who just can’t seem to find what they want anywhere else!
So how could it be that there is nothing new about our Ketubahs?
Well, maybe Ecclesiastes has a point — the high quality designs our team makes in our Argentina studio aren’t just creative, they’re timeless! Though the artwork has its own colorful aesthetic inspired by beautiful modern masters and whimsical ideas, it holds true to the age-old purpose Ketubahs have always served.
The idea of finding your soul mate has always been part of the Jewish tradition—nothing new about that! At This Is Not A Ketubah, we are bringing that very idea into a whole new medium.
Nothing makes us happier than working with couples to find the exact text they wish to use to express their love to each other. All of our standard and custom Ketubot incorporate standard or contemporary text options by working directly with your rabbi to give you exactly the work of art you are looking for.
Designed by hand and inspired by the cool yet elegant group we are (if I do say so myself!), the content of the Jewish marriage contract itself is an expression of the relationship between you and your partner. From traditional to egalitarian to queer Ketubahs, we look forward to accommodating not just the ideas in your mind, but also your heart.
The idea of a Ketubah to express your love isn’t so new. But the incredible art at This Is Not A Ketubah is!
