Artist: Peggy Davis
Ner Tamid, Eternal Light, is designed for a two-language text, but is adaptable for a single-language text written in two columns. It can accommodate a combination of engagement and marriage contracts. The eternal light and menorahs on each side evoke the sanctity of the Holy Temple. The shaped top is taken from antique Italian ketubot. The photo shown here shows a text with parallel promises from the bride and groom in each language. Another text wouldn't have the dividing space between those columns of text.
Peggy's Custom-Print Ketubot provide a text in which your names and other details are inserted so the text flows evenly. The Hebrew letters are set in a font created from Peggy's own Hebrew hand-lettering, and the English text from a calligraphic font of her choosing.
The customization of the ketubah with names and other details is included in the price. You will receive an e-mail proof for approval before it is printed and sent. See text choices in images.
You may provide text/s of your own in any languages using Latin, Hebrew or Cyrillic alphabets.
Each ketubah is a giclée print using archival ink and paper, 17" X 22".
Peggy H. Davis began her study of calligraphy in 1980 and has created ketubot, invitations, wall art and more since that time, learning Hebrew lettering from the master artist Ismar David. She works in her studio in Western Massachusetts, where she is also a member of the Wholesale Klezmer band and a Hebrew teacher.
