Cedar and Cypress

In Talmudic times, it was customary to plant a cypress tree at the birth of a girl, representing beauty, grace and fragrance, and to plant a cedar tree at the birth of a boy, representing majesty, strength and uprightness. Later, branches from these trees were used to make the chuppah for their wedding ceremony. In this ketubah design, Vetta has painted a cypress and a cedar as a frame for the ketubah text, and as a symbol of the chuppah.

Vetta Alexis is an Artist and Calligrapher living and working in London. She specializes in Calligraphy and Painted Illumination in Hebrew, English and Yiddish. She has exhibited widely, including at the British Library, the Museum of London and the Jewish Museum.

‘One will again hear in the cities of Judah and streets of the Jerusalem … The sound of rejoicing and the sound joy – the sound of the bride and the bridegroom…’. Based on the words of the traditional marriage blessing, the sheva brachot – Na’amah Ben Eliezer, a young Israeli artist, has incorporated the Ketubah into a picture of the old city of Jerusalem rejoicing with the bride and bridegroom.
