What is a ketubah?
A modern ketubah is a document
signed by the wedded couple, and often by a third party such as the wedding officiant,
declaring the intents, thoughts, feelings, wishes and responsibilities of each
to the other. In religious Jewish ceremonies,
a ketubah is regarded as a marriage contract that sets out the basic conjugal,
moral and material responsibilities of the husband towards his wife.

A personalized ketubah is a

location in the designated places in your chosen text in a font matching the
rest of the text.
An unpersonalized ketubah will have blanks to be filled
with the above information by the officiant
on the wedding day.
In order to have your ketubah
personalized we will send you upon request a form with blanks to be filled by
you/your wedding officiant. You will return
the completed form to us, so that we can incorporate the information into your
ketubah. We will not print your personalized ketubah until we have received
your approval on a sample that will be sent to you via email.

How do I choose a text?
The ketubah text is usually
chosen according to your and/or
your officiant’s religious affiliation. It is therefore best to consult your rabbi
prior to making your choice. If the
wedding is not a traditionally religious one, you can choose any text that
appeals to both of you from the ones appearing on our website, or provide us
with your own (in which case please choose the custom text option).
