Los Angeles, (PressExposure) February 29, 2012 -- Rachel Deitsch has been creating ketubah designs and making custom ketubahs for over ten years. A ketubah is a traditional Jewish wedding contract with artwork and text that is a document of commitment between the bride and groom. Rachel Deitsch has recently hit the 1,000 ketubahs mark which means that over one thousand married couples have her ketubahs displayed in their homes as a reminder of their love and eternal vows to each other.
New World Ketubah is a unique wedding business owned by Rachel Deitsch, an artist who has been creating custom ketubahs and modern ketubah designs for over ten years. A ketubah is a Jewish wedding contract and an important part of a traditional Jewish wedding. It is a document with text and artwork that is usually signed by both the bride and groom just before the ceremony. The text can be very traditional, or as is true more often, written with a modern couples' concerns in mind. Sometimes the couple will in fact write their own text to reflect their specific story. The ketubah is then displayed in the home of the married couple for the rest of their lives together and serves as a reminder of their love and eternal vows.
Specializing in beautiful, modern ketubah designs, Rachel Deitsch is honored to be a part of such an important and joyful event in so many people's lives. Along with making ketubahs for hundreds of traditional couples, she has made custom ketubahs for a wide range of people with different backgrounds and unique love stories. She has created modern ketubahs for many interfaith couples as well as ketubahs for several same sex couples, too. One wedding ketubah that stands out was created for two lesbian rabbis who were getting married to each other. Being rabbis, they each had a lot to say on the subject of marriage. An entirely new ketubah deisgn was created to accommodate their words.
Another unusual wedding couple was an older couple both marrying for the second time. Their elderly mothers had played matchmaker together and successfully set up their adult divorced children. The ketubah text was edited to include the joining of their two families.
Most of the artwork is selected from the existing offerings , but Rachel does accept commissions for custom work as well. Often the bride or groom has a special request that Ms. Deitsch tries to include in the ketubah design. In one custom ketubah, she incorporated a sculpture that the groom had commissioned for his bride. The two names of the engaged couples evoked an apple and a bullseye, so the ketubah design was of a heart-shaped apple with a bullseye painted on it and an arrow going through it. This ketubah was a challenge, but was ultimately done in a tasteful way that delighted the couple.
Recently, New World Ketubah introduced a new service that is proving to be very popular which coordinates six custom ketubah designs with matching wedding invitations. Many couples have found this to be an exciting way to help create a beautiful and unified theme for their wedding.
