Ketubah 4

Contact Us
Year: 2000
12 layers of paper Size:
Approximately 17.3" x 20.5" (44cm x 52cm)

The Ketubah text is bordered by excerpts from the Friday night Sabbath service Lecha Dodi prayer that was composed by Rabbi Shlomo Alkabets who lived in Safed in the sixteenth century. "Lecha Dodi Likrat Kallah" - "Come my beloved to greet the Bride, let us welcome the Shabbat presence."

This prayer, recited on the Sabbath eve, allegorically shows the people of Israel greeting the approaching Sabbath as, at the wedding ceremony, the groom awaits his bride. It was especially appropriate that the bride and groom to chose this text to adorn their ketubah.

The design for the papercut was inspired by the Magen David - Star of David - while the primary colors of the work - blue and white - are those of the State of Israel. The top white layer has a border that has been cut out to create the appearance of an etching.
