A ketubbah (plural: ketubbot) is an illuminated manuscript containing the text of a Jewish marriage ceremony. "Ketubbah" derives from the Aramaic and Hebrew root “katav,” which means “to write.”  A ketubbah is an excellent example of Hiddur Mitzvah, the rabbinic aesthetic imperative, making a ritual beautiful by artistic expression.  These ketubbot were commissioned by people about to be married.  Each was made in a collaboration with the couple.  They are originals.  He made his last ketubbah in 1986, in his second year of Rabbinic school, for dear friends who were also classmates.  The images here are a selection of the ketubbot he produced.
