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.
    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 Shop.
    Heirloom-quality giclee print using archival inks and paper.
