Gad Almaliah's z'l vision is to take the ancient document of commitment by husband and wife, and combine its text with a special contemporary look. This has resulted in a new style of Ketubot, unavailable anywhere else, and unlike any other artwork. Gad Almaliah z’l was born and raised in Jerusalem. He graduated from the Bezalel Academy of Art in Jerusalem and studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. The Mexican government sponsored Gad for two years to work with local artists at the University of Mexico. He was president of the Graphic Designers’ Association of Israel for 15 years. In addition to designing stamps for the postal services of Israel, the United States and Mexico, Gad designed numerous posters and published several books on design. He designed coins and medals for the Israeli Government and created the emblem for the Six Day War. He taught design on the university level in Israel and Canada in addition to serving on the faculties of School of Visual Arts and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Gad passed away in January of 2007. His wife, Joan Almaliah, continues to produce his Judaica designs, including embossed metal ketubot and artwork. We are proud to present to you these innovative limited editions, signed and numbered by the artist. Photography cannot do justice to the inherent beauty of the embossed metal. Most of the ketubot and artwork shown here are available in silver, copper, mutimetal or watercolor versions. Each metal illustration is embossed, polished and cut by hand, thus making each print a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Creases and imperfections are the nature of the hand made process and contribute to the folkcraft spirit of each print.
