The Scoop: A ketubah is a marriage certificate that has been used in Jewish unions for hundreds of years. While it is no longer a legally binding contract, it has deep significance in traditional Jewish relationships. Ketubah.com has endeavored to keep this tradition alive and give it a modern update by offering beautifully designed and personalized ketubahs that have been rabbi-approved. The online store also supplies Jewish couples with other mementos and gifts that celebrate their relationship and cultural history.

In the early 1990s, Michael Shapiro left his career as a corporate executive to pursue his passion for Judaism and art. He traveled to Israel to study and met Jewish artists who specialized in creating beautiful ketubahs, which are Hebrew marriage contracts.

Michael founded Ketubah Ketubah in 1996 and networked with Jewish artists while working out of his Toronto apartment. Eventually, his small home office transformed into an online retailer that became well-known in Jewish circles and provided ketubahs for couples across the U.S. and Canada.

Ten years later, Michael commissioned some of the best Ketubah artists of the day to create ketubahs that would draw attention and pay tribute to the old Jewish custom. The result was a stunning catalog of exclusive ketubah products that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

Today, Ketubah.com is one of the leading providers of personalized and rabbi-certified ketubahs. These Jewish certificates have been blessing relationships for generations, and Michael said he’s proud to carry on that tradition.

Ketubah.com is a welcoming space for people of all faiths and cultures. It offers ketubahs for interfaith couples and the LGBTQ+ community. There are over 30 styles of text to choose from and  wording of the contract can be adjusted to meet the terms of a modern relationship. You can even choose to write your own vows.

The online collection is always growing and updating to meet the demands of a new generation of Jewish and interfaith couples.

Michael told us he’s proud of the work he has done to keep Jewish traditions alive — with a modern twist.

“I have the privilege of being a part of the most meaningful times of our customers’ lives,” Michael said. “We bend over backward to make it right. We get such positive feedback and praise in making sure that everything is right no matter what.”

Michael launched his first ketubah website before Google existed. He was a pioneer in this tech frontier, and he relied on word of mouth in the Jewish community to boost traffic. Jewish couples found him after hearing a recommendation from their friends, family members, or rabbis.

Business grew steadily from neighborhood to neighborhood, and now Ketubah.com has the distinction of being the largest ketubah gallery in the world. It features the work of over 60 artists, and customers can browse a selection of over 600 original ketubahs. These stunning works of art can only be found on this website.
