Art By Amy Fagin
The enduring and cherished concept of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) is a prominent spiritual aspiration in Jewish thought and liturgy. Its origins date back to the Mishnah where the teachings refer to Tikkun Olam as a social policy governing just conditions, especially as it pertains to the disadvantaged.
In Lurianic Kabbalah the idea of Tikkun Olam accounts for the concept of creation and “divine light” being scattered into prisms as an aspect of the formation of the material world. The shards of shattered “Keilim” (vessels) establish the foundations of good and evil, that which constitutes our material world.
“Tikkun Olam” ketubah is a visual contemplation on the very current issue of stewardship of the planet and the huge task ahead for all people on earth to balance our environment so all life on earth may thrive.
The undulating color spectrum of this design reflects the mystical lore of Kabbalistic thought and the practicalities of Mishnaic teaching. Joyously arranged to celebrate the ketubah vows, this design speaks through the ages of the importance of “Tikkun Olam” up to the present day and into the future.
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.
