Multiple Presenters: The Art of the Ketubah (Hybrid—on Zoom and at the Magnes Museum)

June 2 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

Virtual Program Virtual Program
Program Fee: $12.00 – $18.00

In partnership with the Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life

With ketubah artists David Moss, Deborah Ugoretz & Rachel Biale

The art of illuminating ketubot (Jewish marriage contracts) spans Jewish communities from India and Iran, to Europe, North Africa, and America. In the late 1960s several calligraphers and artists revived and re-envisioned this art, key among them David Moss in Berkeley (housed at the Magnes Museum) and Stuart Kelman in Los Angeles.

In this program, we will hear from and see examples of the work of David Moss in Jerusalem, cut-paper artist Deborah Ugoretz in New York, and New Lehrhaus’ Rachel Biale, followed by a guided tour of the Magnes Museum’s collection of Ketubot (guided tour for in-person attendee only).

Light lunch will be served.

Sunday, June 2 @ 11am–1:30pm with light lunch. $18 in-person, $12 on Zoom
