  • The Moroccan Ketubah $290.00
    Jews have been a small but constant community in Morocco, since the destruction of the Second Temple. In Morocco for centuries, the Jews mixed heavily with the local Arab population — influencing the Jewish Moroccan dialects, traditional foods, and even the tunes of their classic Jewish prayers.
    The Moroccan Ketubah is based on the traditional Ketubot of the Moroccan Jews, particularly their mid 19th century style of Ketubot. In this Ketubah, you can see the subtle Arabic influence on the Moroccan Jewish style. The Horseshoe arch is an important architectural feature that is represented in this Ketubah. The text is decorated on the top with an elaborate representation of the voussoir, adding an importance and glamour to the text. It frames the texts and incorporates the seventh sheva brachot above and below.

  • The Hamadan Ketubah $290.00

    Hamadan is a Persian city in which Jews have lived since Biblical times (in the Bible, it is known as Ahmatha). The city has been a center of Jewish action consistently since, with Yehuda of Hamad leading a rebellion against the Arab government in the mid-10th century, and the Jewish poet Shahin died there.

    Hamadan, tradition has it, where Mordechai and Esther are buried. The Hamadan Ketubah, acknowledging that tradition, has subtle nods to Purim, such as the masks decorating the sides. The Hamadan Ketubah is perfect for the partners who place the power of Purim in their passions.

  • The Amsterdam Ketubah $290.00
    The Jews were prominent in Amsterdam ever since they were expelled from France in 1325 and found refuge with the Dutch. The community grew to its golden years after the Expulsion from Spain led many Spanish Jews to find safety in Amsterdam as well. In the Jewish Netherlands, a unique intermingling of the Sephardi and Ashkenazim was born: intermarriage between these groups was common, and, due to the lack of Rabbis, the two often prayed together. Indeed, even in Dutch today, many Yiddish words are common — a testament to the Jewish influence in Holland throughout the centuries.
    In the Amsterdam Ketubah, this unique mixture of the Sephardi and Ashkenazim in Amsterdam clearly reveals itself. The elaborate patterns of the Sephardi tradition combine with the reserve of the Ashkenazi tradition, to create a magnificent historical Ketubah.

  • The Susa Ketubah $290.00

    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.
