To purchase this ketubah, please visit The Jewish Museum Shops in New York City or click here to order online at and The Jewish Museum have collaborated to bring together a beautiful selection of Ketubahs culled from the museum's collection of Marriage Contracts. The Museum Collection features ketubah designs adapted from original works from around the world that date as far back as the 1600s. Their timeless artwork decorates modern texts and provides a reminder of the long history and tradition behind signing the ketubah.
This ketubah was adapted from a marriage contract from Pisa (Italy), 1721, in the collection of The Jewish Museum. The Grand Duke Ferdinand I of Tuscany (r. 1587-1609) invited Jews to settle in Pisa and Livorno in the late 16th century; they included descendants of Spanish conversos. It is therefore not surprising that, in this ketubah from Pisa, the original bride and groom were of Spanish origin. The groom’s family emblem, featured in the shield above, includes a lion. The representation of seminude figures in the top corners of the ketubah indicates the influence of Italian art.
Translation of Hebrew text on ketubah:
In cartouche: "The crown of the good name"
Above text:
"With a good sign and favorable fortune"
"The Lord make the woman that is to come into your house like Rachel and Leah, which two did build the house of Israel, and do you worthily in Ephrath and be famous in Bethlehem; and let your house be like the house of Peretz, whom Tamar bore unto Judah, of the seed which the Lord shall give you of this young woman." (Ruth 4:11b-12)
"Your wife will be as a fruitful vine in the innermost parts of your house; your children like olive plants around your table." (Psalm 128:3)
