If you’re in the Boston area Kol­bo Fine Ju­daica is ded­i­cat­ed to “Cel­e­brat­ing Jew­ish Life and Cul­ture in Style”. The site is def­i­nite­ly laid out with style in mind! With bright col­ors and tons of op­tions for all sorts of Ju­daica, Ke­tubahs are just one of many great items that the Kol­bo store has to offer.

If you can make the trip to the store in Brook­line (out­side of Boston on the Green Line, Noah lived there for a lit­tle in col­lege!), we high­ly rec­om­mend it. One thing to note is that the hours are a lit­tle ear­ly if you’re plan­ning to vis­it dur­ing the week. We sug­gest swing­ing by on a Sun­day so you have plen­ty of time to pe­ruse all the great books they have on hand!

Com­bin­ing the feel of a tra­di­tion­al book­store with Jew­ish mu­sic and items, Kol­bo proud­ly cov­ers their store walls with beau­ti­ful works of art and hap­pi­ly dis­plays their Ke­tubot. If you’re not near Mass­a­chu­setts, you can browse from their over 225 Ke­tubahs avail­able on­line. The styles are most­ly a lit­tle tra­di­tion­al for my tastes, but there were some great finds! Some of the Artists in the drop-down menu came up with no re­sults, but there were al­so sev­er­al we had nev­er heard of be­fore! Noah and I both thought there were many Artists we had­n’t seen, and we liked the idea of find­ing some­one new!

Some­where be­tween a big-box Ke­tubah store and the neigh­bor­hood Ju­daica store, one thing we loved about Kol­bo Fine Ju­daica was their com­mit­ment to pro­gres­sive and same-sex texts. They even have a link I thought was great, to an­swer some of the most com­mon Ke­tubah ques­tions: Called How to Find the Right Ke­tubah, they might just have the an­swers for you!

We rec­om­mend stop­ping by for a good read, and maybe to find a great Ketubah!
