Danny Azoulay Ketubot
Chantilly Papercut Ketubah
The delicate lace of a bridal gown is the seed of inspiration that spawned the Chantilly Ketubah. A subdued play of a palette of white, off-white and cream motifs dance and intertwine, creating a circular composition of intricacy and subtlety. Ani L’dodi V’dodi Li : I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine (Song of Songs5:3) is centrally placed.
The genuine platinum leaf quietly enhances the ornamentation, while the artwork, with its three-layer paper cut construction gives us a sense of three-dimensional depth. All in all, this is a piece of elegance and sophistication that will be treasured by the couple and generations to come.See This Ketubah See This Ketubah
Birds of Paradise Papercut Ketubah
“In the cities of Judea and the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of joy and the voice of happiness, the voice of the groom and the voice of the bride”
Birds of Paradise is a paper cut ketubah of joy and delight: an artistic expression of the Song of Songs. Olive branches, pomegranates and cheerful song birds are the dominant motifs that bespeak of a life of growth and blossoming. A gold menorah protected by a canopy of myrtle leaves is central to the composition. The composition conveys movement and yet, a sense of a balance and calm.
The charming palette of pastel pinks, blues and greens is enhanced by hand applied 24 karat gold leaf. Birds of Paradise is a celebration of the union of the bride and groom and visually anticipates their full and happy life together.See This Ketubah See This Ketubah

Through the delightful use of color and the simplicity of its design, the Pomegranate ketubah conveys the joy we feel in the celebration of marriage . The overall circular composition of pomegranates and leaves playfully intertwined is a visual metaphor for the weaving together of the lives of the bride and groom.
The pomegranate attributed to have 613 seeds (equal to the number of mitzvot in the Torah) is a symbol in Judaism for righteousness, wisdom and fruitfulness; combine this with love and laughter and you have the main ingredients for a flourishing life together. This giclee print ketubah is a paper cut with hand applied 24 karat embellishment.

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.

Dancing Waves Ketubah
The Dancing Waves Ketubah by Danny Azoulay
Swirling contours intertwine in an exquisite cadence in this fine paper cut ketubah. Botanical motifs decorate the four corners that frame a rhythmic circular pattern, evocative of the ebb and flow of the sea.
The lines of each layer converge and intersect forming a pattern united by the harmony inherent in their sequential movement.
It is a true visual metaphor for the coming together of the bride and groom: each enter the union with their own qualities and together they will form a bond which enhances one another beyond the individual.

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 See This Ketubah
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.
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.

Gardens Papercut Ketubah
Two trees, strong and tall flank a tranquil garden. Their branches gracefully reach upwards towards the sky and each other. They are joined by the arc of a rainbow sheltering a golden menorah. Beneath, the words, “I am my Beloved's and my Beloved is mine – Ani l'dodi v'dodi li” form a bridge connecting these two trees.
A beautiful allegoric visualization of the marriage ceremony, the delicate paper cut ketubah is embellished with hand applied 24 karat gold leaf.See This Ketubah See This Ketubah
Siman Tov Papercut Ketubah
“Siman Tov. May this be an auspicious time.” is the fervent cry that follows the breaking of the glass at the marriage ceremony. It is an expression of the shared joy of the celebrants and their heartfelt wishes for the bride and groom's future. The Siman Tov ketubah is a delicate paper cut reminiscent of fine Belgian lace.
There is exquisite detail in the weave of the motifs and in the application of the 24- karat gold leaf. This symphony of decorative elements creates a harmonious composition, as are our wishes for the new couple's shared life.
