Israeli artist Gad Almaliah’s z’l contemporary design combines the old and the new: ancient calligraphy inspired by the style of the Dead Sea Scrolls, surrounded by rich looking hand cut embossed metals. The central text is enveloped by special designs, in media ranging from lithographic watercolors to hand made, hand polished adornments made of copper or silver alloy.
The unique technique of metal embossing developed by Gad Almaliah is used in all of the metal ketubot. Each metal panel is embossed, polished and cut by hand, thus making each ketubah a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Creases and imperfections are the nature of the hand made process and contribute to the folk craft spirit.
With a look reminiscent of both the ancient and modern land of Israel, these ketubot are the perfect combination of legal text transformed into a striking and special commemoration of the mitzvah of marriage.
Jewish tradition recognizes and encourages the addition of an aesthetic dimension to ceremonial objects. Hiddur Mitzvah means making an effort to acquire the most beautiful ceremonial objects possible in order to enrich the religious observance with aesthetic dimension.
