Danny Azoulay Ketubot
Antique Lace Papercut Ketubah
This elegant ketubah by Danny Azoulay, with its intricate and floral design, is reminiscent of antique lace (hence the name). The subdued play of a palette of white, off white, and cream motifs dance and intertwine creating a subtle composition. Crowning the ketubah, can be seen a Menorah and Ani L'dodi V'dodi Li: I am my beloved and my beloved is mine (Song of Songs 5:3). The genuine gold leaf quietly enhances the ornamentation, while the art work with its four-layer paper cut construction gives us a sense of three-dimensional depth. This piece will be treasured by the couple and generations to come. A limited edition: numbered and signed by the artist.See This Ketubah
Jerusalem Gate Papercut Ketubah
A rhythmic growth of vines,reaching upwards towards the skies dominates the eloquent design of the Jerusalem Gate ketubah. Here is Spring’s awakening: a dance of leaves and tendrils creating patterns of loveliness and vitality.
Set in the midst of this lively activity is a vignette of two deer quietly grazing beside the gates of Jerusalem. There reigns an air of tranquility: a stolen moment of repose in life’s exhilarating journey. This is an eloquent allegory for the bride and groom and the oaths exchanged, which both binds and strengthens each one.
“I will betroth you to me with righteousness and justice, kindness and mercy”
These words from Hosea 2:21 embody the deep commitment of the marriage covenant.

Color Song Ketubah
In our life there is a single color, as on an artist's palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love. (Marc Chagall)
Luminosity and color take center stage in this synchronous composition. It is a poem of palette and hue, light and movement, and fusion and modulation.
The two-layered paper cut–with its rhythmic interplay of burgeoning lines-creates a strong counterpoint to the drama of transitioning color taking place in the underlying layer.
There is over-all simplicity to the complexity of the design that is a visual metaphor for marriage: dynamic, always changing, full of intricacy but with the clarity and candor of love which lies at the heart of it all.

A lovely serenity is the pervasive feeling of this remarkable work. The leaves of graceful trees flanking the text, are cloudlike and ethereal, while the multi-layered construction of the paper cut create a perception of depth and distance. This unique ketubah with the words from Hosea: 2:21 I betroth you forever, I betroth you in righteousness, law, grace and compassion, inscribed below and the words: I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine (Song of Songs) floating above, is a bold departure from the flatness of traditional ketubah artwork.

Karmei Yerushalayim Papercut Ketubah
Symbolic motifs abound in the Karmei Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Vineyards) ketubah. Two peacocks (beauty) flanking a pomegranate tree (plenty) are bathed in golden light. The clusters of grapes surrounding the text remind us of the wine, which plays a central part of the wedding ceremony.
Wine is symbolic of the life cycle. Just as the grape juice is transformed to something that improves with age, so may the marriage bring increasing joy throughout the years. Beneath the text is the city of Jerusalem, always cherished in our hearts and minds.
The Karmei Yerushalayim paper-cut ketubah is a double-layered giclee print, hand-embellished with 24-karat gold.See This Ketubah
Azure Ketubah by Danny Azoulay
” I will betroth you to me forever; and I will betroth you with fidelity, with righteousness, with justice, with kindness and with mercy.” The lyrical words from Hosea 2:21 express the deep commitment of the bride and the groom to one another. The Azure paper cut ketubah is made up of five concentric circles of imagery, ornamentation and biblical texts, which adorn and encircle the ketubah’s text. The decorative innermost circle is embellished with 24- karat gold leaf. Nature motifs, including vines, leaves and roses in full bloom, playfully intertwine against a background of gradient blue. Two deer symbolizing love, gentleness and grace repose in the shade of an olive tree, which is, in turn, protected by a canopy of myrtle leaves (symbolic of the marriage canopy). The words, Ani l' dodi v' dodi li/ I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine, from Song of Songs 6:3 encapsulate and complete this the vibrant and beautiful artwork. The Azure ketubah filled with movement, light and the poetry of the Bible simply brims with joy and delight.See This Ketubah
Joy Papercut Ketubah
This lovely ketubah combines a rhythmic progression of a simple geometric motif with the delight of color. The repetition of the cube with subtle variation is coupled with an interplay of the rich palette that creates a sensation of joyful buoyancy. A color juxtaposed next to the right color will symbiotically define, emphasize and elevate one another. Like two distinct colors, the bride and groom, embark on their journey in life, side by side, bringing their own individual qualities and mutually enhancing and strengthening each other by the closeness of their being.
Papercut on fine acid-free paper: hand-embellished with genuine platinum leaf. A limited edition; all ketubahs are numbered and signed by the artist.
Leaves of Love Papercut Ketubah
At first glance, the Leaves of Love ketubah with its celestial blue palette lifts one up to the heavens. Mythical leaves surround the ketubah. They suggest a peacock's glorious fan or precious filigreed jewelry. Above, a golden menorah reminds us of the light of the Torah that illuminates the darkness. This exquisitely executed ketubah is constructed of two paper cut layers.
The multi-layer construction gives a perception of depth, while the artistic composition directs our eye both above and below. There is a careful visual allusion to the significance of the wedding contract and to the sanctity of the union of the bride and the groom. The artwork is a giclee print enhanced with 24-karat gold leaf.

Pardes Papercut Ketubah
Two playful deer approach a tree in a pastoral orchard. The trees dance rhythmically against a background of tranquility and peace. Although the city is close by, the orchard, like a marriage, is a refuge where one may take a moment's repose.
This visual analogy is stunning in its subtle execution. The white palette and the border of woven motifs of the Star of David give the ketubah a lacelike quality while the 24-karat gold leaf enhances its splendor and simplicity, making the Pardes a beloved ketubah.
This papercut ketubah is offered with a white background. The appearance of this ketubah can be changed by replacing the white background. All ketubot by Daniel Azoulay are printed in Israel.
