One of our favorite artists, Danny Azoulay, is admired near and far. One of his many beautiful ketubot, the Gardens Ketubah, was the chosen ketubah for a wonderful newlywed couple.
The happy couple, Sara and Yonah Veffer, were married on November 8, 2011 in Beit Shemesh, Israel.
The Gardens Ketubah displays two trees, strong and tall, which flank a tranquil garden. Their branches gracefully reach upwards towards the sky and each other. They are joined by the arc of a rainbow sheltering a golden menorah. Beneath, the words, "I am my Beloved's and my Beloved is mine – Ani l'dodi v'dodi li" form a bridge connecting these two trees.
A beautiful allegoric visualization of the marriage ceremony, the delicate paper cut ketubah is embellished with hand applied 24 karat gold leaf.
Danny Azoulay's papercut ketubot are intricate and exquisite pieces of art.
Azoulay creates each ketubah in Jerusalem, and each ketubah is dated, numbered and signed by the artist and is one of a limited edition. It not only imbues the marriage ceremony with beauty, but is an artwork to be lastingly treasured by future generations.
Each ketubah made by Danny Azoulay will serve as a new couple's first family heirloom.
