    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.

    This ketubah was adapted from a marriage certificate from Shanghai (China), 1946, in the collection of the Jewish Museum. Decorated with a cherry tree in blossom and two birds, the original included the names of two officers conducting the ceremony, as well as the name of the witness and his congratulations to the bride and groom. Although it was not a Jewish marriage contract, this Chinese secular document was an interesting testimony to Jewish history. During World War II, the original couple fled from Europe to Shanghai, where they married. The ceremony took place in a tea room on Chusan Road in Shanghai.
