Ardyn Halter has used the age-old Jewish tradition of papercutting to produce a Ketubah of exquisite delicacy and refinement. His laser cut technique creates an authentic burnt edge look on each cut in this elegant design. Surmounting the central text is a line from the Song of Songs, “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine”. At the base of the Ketubah is the well known verse by Yehuda HaLevi: “Ever since you were the home of love, my love has dwelt with you”. Above the orange tree is “B’Siman Tov U-Ve Mazel Tov”.
