Ke­tubah by Karny fea­tures a small se­lec­tion of tra­di­tion­al style Ke­tubahs. The artist, Karny, is an ex­pe­ri­enced artist born Tel Aviv and trained in both Is­re­al and Toron­to. The “about the artist” sec­tion of the page fea­tures an im­pres­sive list of her ex­hi­bi­tions and jour­nal­is­tic re­views.

Her Ke­tubot most­ly fea­ture a flo­ral bor­ders sur­round­ing very tra­di­tion­al he­brew calig­ra­phy. Though the tra­di­tion­al style is not ex­act­ly what Hei­di and I usu­al­ly look for in terms of per­son­al taste, there are cer­tain­ly those who pre­fer a less mod­ern look. The of­fer­ings range from the tra­di­tion­al Ke­tubot to more elab­o­rate three di­men­sion­al pieces.

The site runs very smooth­ly and the small gal­leries un­der each sub-col­lec­tion are easy to nav­i­gate. Ke­tubah by Karny of­fers a more than ad­e­quate de­scrip­tion of what a Ke­tubah is and ex­plains thor­ough­ly the dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives that many Jews take on the sub­ject.

The text se­lec­tion is al­so ad­e­quate al­though it leaves some­thing to be de­sired in terms of non-tra­di­tion­al wed­dings like in­ter­faith or wed­dings join­ing two brides or two grooms. I do not un­der­stand why so many ke­tubah sites leave out these ex­treme­ly im­por­tant de­mo­graph­ics!

Over­all the site runs ex­treme­ly well. The on­ly thing that was lack­ing — and which Hei­di and I hold at the high­est of im­por­tance — is di­ver­si­ty of se­lec­tion. I fin­ished brows­ing the whole col­lec­tion in about 10 min­utes. If you and your part­ner have trou­ble choos­ing out of large of­fer­ings, you might see this as an ad­van­tage. Ei­ther way, Ke­tubah by Karny of­fers an in­ter­est­ing se­lec­tion of both tra­di­tion­al two di­men­sion­al ke­tubahs and branch­es out a bit to of­fer a few in three di­men­sions.
