Artist's Description

A central part of the Jewish marriage ceremony is the ketubah (marriage contract) written in the original Aramaic text. In a Jewish marriage, the chatan accepts upon himself various responsibilities which are detailed in the ketubah. His principal obligations are to provide food, shelter and clothing for his wife, and to be attentive to her emotional needs. The protection of the rights of a Jewish wife is so important that the marriage may not be solemnized until the contract has been completed.

The document is signed by two witnesses, and has the standing of a legally binding agreement. The ketubah is the property of the kallah and she must have access to it throughout their marriage. It is often written amidst beautiful artwork, to be framed and displayed in the home.
The image shows the final touches being added before the groom and his witnesses sign the ketubah
