  • 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 Kermanshah Ketubah $290.00

    The city of Kermanshah was one of the great centers of the Jewish Persian world. From Nathan Habavly’s documentation of the Jewish world there in the 10th century to the founding of the Judeo-Persian newspaper Ha-Haim there in the 20th century, Kermanshah has been one of the most under-rated Jewish cities of the last thousand years.

    The style of the Ketubot of Kermanshah is ancient and beautiful. The Ketubot of Kermanshah were never as opulent as some of the other Persian Ketubot, but they were decorated in the Persian-Jewish tradition. This Ketubah is a perfect mix of the eastern and western Jewish traditions.

  • 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.
