Ketubah.com 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.
The monetary unit mentioned in the original contract was used in Khorasan Province, making the probable origin of the Ketubah Meshed, the principle city of that region. Although the Jews of Meshed were forced to convert to Islam in 1839, they continued to observe Judaism in secret. On the occasion of a wedding, two marriage contracts would be prepared, an Islamic document, such as this one, for public use, and a Jewish one for the home.
The Hebrew words on this ketubah are the signatures of the witnesses.
Available in 4 sizes and 18 text options, including custom text.
Member's discount is only available when the ketubah is purchased through The Jewish Museum Shops.
