With an MFA in Paint­ing and an MA in Con­tem­po­rary Art His­to­ry, artist Hadass Mor Ger­son has built The Paint­ed Ke­tubah not on­ly on knowl­edge and skill, but tra­di­tion. Start­ing through word of mouth, Hadass want­ed to cre­ate ke­tubahs that not on­ly con­tained tra­di­tion­al el­e­ments, but were com­pli­men­ta­ry of each in­di­vid­ual cou­ple’s mod­ern style.

What stuck out to Noah and I was the de­sign and user-friend­ly feel of The Paint­ed Ke­tubah web­site. It was mod­ern, but not con­fus­ing; and sim­ple, with just enough in­for­ma­tion. She dis­plays the ma­jor­i­ty of her ke­tubot on her home­page with links to pho­tos of her paint­ed pieces and Et­sy. Time and time again it seems that Ke­tubah artists for­get the most im­por­tant part of their web­site — or­der­ing and pay­ment in­for­ma­tion. How­ev­er Hadass not on­ly has a “How to Or­der Page”, but al­so a dig­i­tal down­load form!

The Paint­ed Ke­tubah of­fers Edi­tioned Gi­clee Prints for those look­ing for some­thing a lit­tle more price-friend­ly, or Cus­tomized hand-paint­ed wa­ter­col­or de­signs. Among the prints Hadass sells, al­though gor­geous, have lit­tle op­tions. How­ev­er Noah and I both fell in love with her cus­tom works — it’s not of­ten that you find many ke­tubah artists that hand paint their pieces. Among the hand­craft ke­tubah artists that are out there, we both agreed that Hadass def­i­nite­ly cre­ates some of the most unique pieces we have ever seen. For those look­ing for a ke­tubah with a com­plete­ly per­son­al touch (and love wa­ter­col­ors!), def­i­nite­ly check out Hadass’ web­site!
