Ketubah Description

View Ketubah Details

Two soaring trees, embossed in silver foil, create a tranquil woodland canopy celebrating nature. The forest shelters a pair of geese, who mate for life, along with five other animal couples. Including the bride and groom there are seven pairs, echoing the seven days of creation and the Seven Blessings of the wedding ceremony, one of which frames this ketubah: "All creation speaks of Your glory."
