  • 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.

  • The Persian Ketubah $290.00
    The Jews have been an integral part of the Persian Empire since, at least, the ancient historical and biblical era of Cyrus, who let us practice our religion and rebuild our temple. The Persian Jews have a unique style, visible in the everything from the architecture to the style of liturgy, that combines thousands of years of Judaism with thousands of years of Persian culture.
    The Persian Ketubah is a distinctive Ketubah, nothing like the ketubot of any other Jewish community, ancient or modern. The Persian Ketubah is in the deep, rich colors, traditional in the Persian communities; and contains the decorative flair and patterns associated with the Persian Jewish community. The metaphorical frame around the deep aquamarine center that holds the Ketubah text is also a common element in traditional Persian Ketubot.

  • The Bucharest Ketubah $290.00

    Jews have been living in Romania since the 16th century; first the Jewish Turkish merchants first settled there, followed by waves of Ashkenazim over the centuries. The Jews of Bucharest have both suffered misfortunes and flourished profoundly at different eras during the last half-millennium in and around Bucharest, Moldovia and Walachia.

    The Romanian Jewish tradition of Ketubah art is one of the best of the European and Ashkenazi Jews. The Ketubot of Bucharest often traditionally included references to the twelve tribes of Israel (such as the names and symbols of the 12 tribes aligning the columns of the Bucharest Ketubah) and the blue that is now so powerfully associated with Judaism.

  • 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.
