View Ketubah Details

The Jewish wedding canopy is called a Hupah. The Hupah represents the couple's new home, open on all sides to receive the love and support of the community around them. In the ring around the text, two quotes are found which read: This is my beloved, this is my friend and Rejoice and be glad, O loving friends.
