  eborah Kaplan is a preeminent calligrapher. She is an alumna of the Philadelphia College of Art (now called the Philadelphia University of the Arts) with a major in Illustration.  

Her calligraphic experience exceeds three decades, including personal study with several of the world's top calligraphers, including Margaret Prasthoffer, and a year-long course with Reggie Ezel.  She is a founding member of the Philadelphia Calligraphers' Society, and since 1979 has been teaching calligraphy, helping others progress and instilling her enthusiasm for the written word.  
 
lthough she does any and all kinds of calligraphy, Deborah specializes in custom-made, one-of-a-kind ketubot, choosing this art form because of her love for the Hebrew language and letter-forms, and the opportunity it affords to combine meaningful and decorative illustration with calligraphy. She also offers ketubah prints, Quaker Wedding, Certificates, as well as General Marriage Contracts.  Please click on the ketubah link above to view. 

Her interests also include anything done by hand,such as sewing, knitting, quilting, dog grooming and painting.  She is an enthusiastic Israeli dancer, reader, backgammon player and gardener. 
           
 
eborah and her husband, Albert, live in Bala Cynwyd,PA. 
They have three grown children and seven grandchildren.
