• Marty Spielman
    Ketubah Artist

Who

Marty is a self-described 39 year old in a 71-year-old body, who spent the last forty years of his leisure time perfecting his Ketubah making skills. He is self-taught in Hebrew calligraphy.

Ketubah is an illuminated wedding contract, which for Marty, is like a work of art. It takes him one to two months to complete a Ketubah.

He studied at the Music & Art High School and subsequently at Cooper Union. He still runs his own graphic design company at 72. He's a husband to Roz, has two children and three grandkids, but continues to work.

When he served in Seoul, Korea, he designed and built 24 simulated stained glass windows for two chapels there.
