Chicago Fireworks Ketubah, by Judith Joseph
New ketubah: inspired by the beautiful skyline of Chicago, as seen from out on Lake Michigan. This is a new interpretation of an earlier painting, which I created for my son Cameron and his wonderful wife, Blake, for the save-the-date for their wedding:
Chicago Skyline, by Judith Joseph
Blake’s beautiful mom, Raina, just married her beloved, Jeff, and they asked me to create a ketubah for them inspired by the earlier painting I had done for Blake and Cam.
When I look at Raina and Jeff, I can see the sparks fly between them, so I suggested we add fireworks. Raina asked for lots of flowers, which is also appropriate for love, joy and the motto of the City of Chicago: “Urbs In Horto”, which means, “City In A Garden.”
So much joy and fun for our family this year! Blessings and joy to both couples! See it here on my website.

Fountain in Daley Plaza, Chicago
I may be a Judaic artist, but after teaching art for 10 years at Northside Catholic Academy, I will always celebrate St. Patty’s Day. Here’s a photo I took at Chicago’s Daley Plaza (right after performing my civic responsibility to serve jury duty.) This is how we roll in Chicago: green fountains, green river, a green nature has never seen . Happy St. Patty’s Day to all, as we are ALL Irish today!
