Frequently Asked Questions
How do I ensure my Ketubah is Kosher or satisfies my Rabbi’s requirements?
It is imperative that the text of your Ketubah is as accurate and detailed as the artwork itself. I am vigilant in adhering to the halachic requirements concerning the Ketubah. Therefore for each commission, I get in contact with the Rabbi officiating the marriage ceremony of each couple to provide the Hebrew for the Ketubah. I do not make any modifications to the text itself – with the exclusion of the font colour if the Rabbi is agreeable to this. Before anything is printed, I send the final design to the Rabbi to double check and approve- and in this way I ensure your Ketubah is Kosher ahead of your big day.
In situations where the Rabbi is unable to provide the Hebrew, I will make alternative arrangements to ensure the Kashrut and halachic fulfillment of your Ketubah.
What is the process to order a Ketubah?
Email me at [email protected] or fill in an inquiry form in the ‘Contact’ section and I will get in touch with you to discuss the thematic and artistic development of your Ketubah or special project further.
What is the timeline for commissioning a Ketubah?
The more time we have to work with the better – we can never start the process too early.
Ideally a 2-3 month notification period before the wedding is preferable (for weddings within Australia) and 3-4 months for international weddings.
Left it to the last minute? I can produce an original Ketubah artwork within a month, and predesigned Ketubah prints within a couple of weeks – extra charges may apply in these circumstances and times may vary according to postage.
