This original ketubah consisted of
an 8.5x11 black and white Zerox sheet
which everyone signed and for many years was held in a bank vault for safekeeping.
At one point I held a program detailing the history and development of the ketubah in the
Jewish home and decided that I could not be like the shoemaker who walked around barefoot.
Since this had to be a collaborative decision with my husband, we dug out our original ketubah and
discussed how to best display it and which design to use around the original. Several options were
explored: should the b/w border be displayed- no, it was not attractive; should the heading be part of the
final- no, it would distract from the selected design and be an unwanted focal point; should we add
our own heading as displayed on the left- no, we did not want to include any additional text.
And so the the one on the right was selected. Still under consideration, is the option to add some
illuminated text in gold leaf. The image you see on your computer screen cannot possibly do it any justice.
original black and white ketubah (8.5"x11") was folded and kept in the
bank safe. It is now framed and displayed with pride.
