Ketubah Description

View Ketubah Details

This design draws on the innovative photocollage technique in its design. The artist captured the image of a lone dove in the window of this Jerusalem building. When it became two doves, mated for life, the image became a warm loving symbol of a lifetime together looking out the window to their future. The colors are meant to emphasize that warmth and to evoke the texture of Jerusalem stone.
