View Ketubah Details

Time passes, the seasons flow, everything around us turns and changes with the vicissitudes of life, but the union established in marriage, the creation of a new, loving family and home, provide stability, steadfastness and strength. The cycle of the months is represented by the Zodiac, which may also suggest certain values and blessings for the marriage, for example: balance (Tishrei); brotherly love, peace and friendship (Sivan); strength and action (Kislev, Av); softness and tenderness (Nisan); youth and purity (Elul); fruitfulness (Adar); hard work (Iyar); and growth and renewal (Shvat).
