A Feast Of All Your Hours
Art By Debra Band
A Feast of All Your Hours celebrates the joys of wine, gardens, music and friends, inspired by verses from a poem by medieval Sephardic scholar and poet, Dunash ben Labrat inscribed around the border of your ketubah text. There came a voice, Awake! Drink wine at morning’s break. ‘Mid rose and camphor make A feast of all your hours… Where lilting singers hum To the throbbing of the drum, Where gentle viols thrum To the plash of fountains’ showers… We’ll drink on garden beds With roses round our heads. To banish woes and dreads We’ll frolic and carouse. Flowers domestic and tropical burst from the text, mingled with the grapes and hops that provide the wine and beer, bring to mind great celebrations and simpler good times with friends. My signature honeybee, resting on a lily stem at top left, joins the party. The bright plants also witness fundamental Jewish values: the pink lilies relate to a rabbinic legend about the value of the Ten Commandments in the imperfect human world, while grapes symbolize the wine with which Jewish tradition sanctifies your wedding and nearly every sacred moment. Poetry translation by Raymond P. Scheindlin, 1986
Our paper ketubahs (papercut ketubahs included) are printed on cold press, acid free art paper, the standard in artistic reproductions. This paper is slightly textured and can be ordered with or without name printing.
Canvas ketubahs have a glossy look with texture and shine. The canvas can be framed behind glass or can be stretched by a framer. Our canvas ketubahs require name printing.
We offer the canvas stretching feature in house as well. When ordered this way, the ketubah is stretched by hand on a specially built frame in a style known as gallery wrap and comes ready to hang complete with a wire at the back.
