Ketubot, Chuppot, Invitations and Stationery for Lesbian and Gay Weddings
I’m a proud supporter of gay marriage, and all gay rights! I know gay and lesbian couples still face discrimination, and as a way to show my support I’m pleased to offer FREE STANDARD (tube) GROUND SHIPPING on any same sex ketubah order. Just use the code ENGAYGED when you place your ketubah order. (If you order the “Wedding Ready” upgrade, you’ll receive a $17 discount off of your total.)
Love should always be encouraged in all its forms, and I’m delighted to offer ketubot specifically for lesbian and gay couples. I have been honored to create custom ketubot for same sex couples since I started my art and calligraphy business in 1995, and when I designed my first ketubah print, Tree of Life Ketubah, it was very important to me to offer wording especially for gay and lesbian couples.
I composed my Equal Partners text in two versions: with feminine Hebrew for lesbian weddings, and with masculine Hebrew for gay weddings. (In fact, many of my heterosexual couples like the Equal Partners text so much they choose to use it for their own weddings!)
Equal Partners Commitment Ketubah Text
On the ___ day of the week, the ___ day of the month of ___ in the year _____, corresponding to ________ in _______, ______, ________ and ________entered into a mutual covenant as equal partners, loving and supportive companions in life, and said each to the other: I betroth you to me forever. I betroth you to me in everlasting faithfulness. With trust and devotion, I will be your loving friend as you are mine. Set me as a seal upon your heart, like the seal upon your hand, for love is stronger than death. And I will cherish you, honor you, uphold and sustain you in all truth and sincerity, in times of joy as well as hardship. I will respect you and the divine image within you. May our hearts be united forever in faith and hope. Let our home be built on truth and loving-kindness, rich in wisdom and reverence. May we always keep these words in our hearts as a symbol of our eternal commitment to each other: I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine. We joyfully enter into this covenant and solemnly accept its obligations. Our promise to each other, in the presence of loving family and friends, is valid and binding.
With the exception of the lithograph version of Illuminated Letters Ketubah, ALL of my ketubot are available with Equal Partners wording. You may also choose to write your own wording to add to any of my ketubot (except the lithograph version of Illuminated Leters), and if you’d like to commission a custom ketubah for your gay or lesbian wedding or commitment ceremony I’d be delighted to work with you. Just give me a call at 866-KETUBOT (866-538-8268) or send an email to set up a consultation.
