Yael Magenheim, an Argentine artist, has been designing Ketubot for fun since her first childhood friend got married. When not figuring out how to create the most fun Ketubah ever, she spends her time drawing, her first childhood passion that she still obsesses over today. Yael’s first love is Klimt, who has influenced and changed her life both artistically and emotionally. Although she stumbled into the Ketubah world accidentally, she spends her days and nights dreaming up new, better, more fun Ketubot. For the last three years, Yael has also volunteered at Ieladeinu, the Argentine Jewish Orphanage that This Is Not A Ketubah proudly supports. Yael also teaches advanced classic art at Scholem Aleijem in Buenos Aires.

Julian Portman’s passion and inspiration come, first and foremost, from music. Although his musical style has been profoundly influenced by the spectrum of bands from Death Cab for Cutie to Sigur Ros, in the This Is Not a Ketubah studio (where Julian is Team Ketubah’s lead software developer by day), Julian is primarily known for his sighs.

Nina Osorovsky’s discovered Ketubot in a roundabout way: through cooking. Her obsession with finding the right ingredients and creating new and fun ways to bring them together, to cook food that is tasty and, of course, Kosher has led Nina (when she is not working closely coordinating the arts team) to take on the unofficial title of the Team Ketubah Chef.

Not to mention, she’s the funniest one on the team.
