Ketubah Description

View Ketubah Details

The artwork is designed to capture the excitement of the joy and intimacy of a passionate marriage. The landscape surrounding the Ketubah text presents an Eden-like view of the lovers’ world. The papercut presents a motif of Jerusalem rooftops under a sky filled with forty stars, a number meaning “many” across the Hebrew Bible. The band of Hebrew and English text surrounding the artwork is drawn from The Song of Songs 2:17: When the day blows gently And the shadows flee, Set out, my beloved, like a gazelle Or a young stag, For the hills of spice.
