Susa (“Shushan” in the Bible) is one of the ancient cities of the Jews of Persia. As the Capital of the Persian Empire in the era of the Bible, it was the home of not just thousands of Jews, but of the administration of the Persian empire. But perhaps most importantly, Susa is, of course, where, according to our tradition, the Prophet Daniel is buried.
The Ketubot of Susa are in the traditional Persian Ketubah style, with all of the ornamentation that is customary. Deeply influenced by the ancient Persian Isfahani aesthetic, the Ketubah merges the Persian style with the elements of the Ketubah and Judaism as well, including the six pomegranates around the edge of the Ketubah and the four chais in the four corners of the inner frame.
All Historical Ketubot are printed on traditional Heavyweight Giclée Paper. Printed using archival and fade resistant ink. The Historical Ketubot are the traditional Ketubot of the Jewish diaspora.The Ketubah Artist creates, numbers, and sends you the Ketubah himself.
