Ketubah Description

View Ketubah Details

This design is reproduced from an original created in gouache. The dawn landscape spreads before the new couple, welcoming them to their joyous new life together. The decorative Hebrew and English text borders present verses from the Song of Songs. The wine resting on the terrace symbolizes the joy and sanctification of Jewish marriage, while the myrrh bushes allude to fragrance and joy.
