CBL Fine Art is more than just an on­line Ke­tubah store, but a beau­ti­ful award-win­ning shop for those who hap­pen to be pass­ing through North Jer­sey (Noah and I stopped by when we vis­it­ed my sis­ter)! Un­like some oth­er shops which on­ly fea­ture on­line-op­tions, all the Ke­tubot of­fered on their site are al­so on full-size dis­play in the gallery if you’re the type that needs to feel the pa­per in your hands!

The on­line in­ter­face was great for find­ing all sorts of gifts, but you will have to dig a lit­tle bit to find the Ke­tubot (hint: they’re list­ed un­der Ju­daica) among all the oth­er great items. Of­fer­ing about 250 Ke­tubot, the se­lec­tion is slight­ly less than you might find on ‘big-box’ on­line Ke­tubah stores, with most priced around a rea­son­able $250. CBL Fine Art has all of the top names in Ke­tubah Artists, in­clud­ing those Amy Fa­gin. We were al­so ex­cit­ed to see a less-com­mon medi­um: cop­per and sil­ver in the works of Gad Al­mali­ah, which is­n’t some­thing every Ke­tubah store car­ries! The best part is you can go in­to the store and see the tex­tures for your­self!

One thing Noah and I ap­pre­ci­at­ed was the avail­abil­i­ty of op­tions, but un­for­tu­nate­ly not every Ke­tubah of­fers op­tions for In­ter­faith and Same-Sex cou­ples, and some with on­ly one or two text op­tions (some­times Or­tho­dox, some­times Con­ser­v­a­tive and Re­form). So be­fore you fall in love with a Ke­tubah de­sign, be sure to keep an eye out for the op­tions in­clud­ed– they may not of­fer your text. CBL Fine Art al­so does­n’t fea­ture a sort­ing op­tion by price among on­ly Ke­tubot, which could make search­ing with­in your bud­get a bit more chal­leng­ing!
