Ketubah Description

View Ketubah Details

Pomegranates & doves repose in a huppa made of vines. Although not an actual papercut, this Ketubah pays homage to the fine art of papercutting attributed to the 14th century Rabbi Shem-Tov ben Yitzhak ben Ardutiel, who after his ink froze, completed a treatise by cutting out the letters.
