Beloveds II Papercut
Art By Lauren Rosenthal McManus
Leafy branches of the tree of life, which symbolizes the interconnection of all living things, surrounds the ketubah text in this design. At its center, the classic quote from the Song of Songs, “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine,” encircles the text in both English and Hebrew, capturing the spirit of the moment when you’ll acknowledge and celebrate your connection to each other.

Papercutting has been a traditional Jewish art form for Ketubah decoration since the Middle Ages. Thanks to advances in artisanal laser cutting in the late 20th century, these exquisite pieces of fine art are now within everyone’s budget. Papercut Ketubahs are lovingly produced, one at a time, to archival standards.
