Star Original Ketubah Hand Painted by Mickie Caspi
“The Star Original Ketubah is a hand painted original watercolor that I created in 1990. Your marriage vows nestle in the center of a Magen David which is encircled by a stylized branch of ripe pomegranates bursting with seeds and golden stars. A quote from the Song Of Songs surrounds the ketubah like a halo. Jewish tradition teaches that the pomegranate is a symbol of righteousness because it is said to have 613 seeds, which corresponds with the 613 mitzvot, or commandments, of the Torah. For this reason and others, it is customary to eat pomegranates on Rosh Hashanah. Moreover, the pomegranate represents fruitfulness, knowledge, learning, and wisdom. The pomegranate is listed in the Bible as one of the seven species (shivat haminim) of fruits and grains that are special products of the Land of Israel. The price includes your own text that I will calligraph into the center of the design by hand.”

She has been crafting ketubot for brides and grooms as a full time job for over 34 years. Mickie has a lot of experience with all kinds of requests.
If you like this design, but would like it to be a little different – colors, shape, take out something, put in something, even paper cut, or just exactly the same, but newer and made just for you, or if you have any questions at all, don’t be shy! Just call (1-800-KETUBOT) or email! That’s what we are here for.
One lovely aspect of a Jewish wedding is choosing your first work of art together as a couple. You can jointly decide on an appropriate text that reflects your ideals and beliefs. An original ketubah is more expensive than an offset lithograph or giclee print. This is because an original ketubah takes more time and Mickie’s undivided attention to your personal requests. It will become a treasured piece of art that will grace your home and become a family heirloom.
The best time to order your Star Original Ketubah is at least four months before your wedding. We understand that the best laid plans sometimes go awry and very often Mickie will end up doing a rush original ketubah – some as late as a month before the wedding. It’s usually not too late to receive a hand painted personalized ketubah, but Mickie is not a machine. She is sometimes out of town or sick. Please CALL (1-800-KETUBOT) or email if your wedding date is a month or less away to make sure that she can complete your ketubah for you! When ordering, please tell us your wedding date. We will ensure that your ketubah arrives on time. In all the years of making ketubot, Mickie has never been late to a wedding. If you are ordering a custom, original ketubah within 4 weeks of your wedding, there will be a rush charge added of $350. Please contact us to make sure there is enough time to create your custom ketubah. Mickie would love to do it for you!
You can use any of the wide range of texts that we offer (Read Ketubah Texts) or write your own text and customize it as much as you like.
