    3548 Not On View Keywords Marriage Collection Area Ceremonial Art Submit Picture Request Marriage is one of the most important mitzvot or commandments in Judaism and Scriptures are replete with verses encouraging the union of man and woman One of the essential elements of a Jewish wedding ceremony is the writing and transfer of a marriage contract or ketubbah plural ketubbot The ketubbah was originally formulated to protect a woman s rights in marriage by establishing the financial obligations of the groom toward his bride in cases of divorce or death Jews expelled from Spain and Portugal at the end of the 15th century brought the tradition of decorating the ketubbah marriage contract to the lands where they settled including Italy Holland England North Africa and the Ottoman Empire The practice flourished in Italy where there was a long tradition of decorating documents and where reading the ketubbah aloud during the marriage ceremony became popular in the 16th century The decoration of a ketubbah was not only an embellishment but was included also for practical reasons A major concern of Spanish rabbis was that no changes be made to the provisions of the ketubbot after they were signed Italian ketubbot stem predominantly from the northern part of the country with a few examples from central Italy since Jews had been expelled from other regions before the form became popular Written in parchment they usually feature lavish ornamentation inspired by both Jewish and Christian art During the 18th century decorations ranging from biblical scenes to the signs of the zodiac became so extravagant that rabbis enacted laws limiting expenditures on marriage contracts This example presented within a massive architectural frame is typical of nineteenth century Florentine illumination as opposed to seventeenth and eighteenth century ketubbot from that city which have very simple ornamentation or none at all A crowned shield above is inscribed GR initials of the first names of bride and groom Giuseppe and Regina Yosef and Malkah in Hebrew Bearing a trumpet and a laurel branch the winged figure within a panel is likely a personification of Fama fame renown or rumor Source Adapted from Nahson Claudia J KETUBBOT MARRIAGE CONTRACTS FROM THE JEWISH MUSEUM San Francisco Pomegranate 1998 p 37 Bibliography Nahson Claudia J KETUBBOT MARRIAGE CONTRACTS FROM THE JEWISH MUSEUM San Francisco Pomegranate 1998 p 37 This information may change as the result of ongoing research Other Works in Highlights article data cycle auto height calc data cycle timeout 0 data cycle easing linear data cycle speed 1000 data cycle carousel offset 120 data cycle throttle speed true data cycle manual trump false data cycle swipe true data cycle prev cycle prev data cycle next cycle next John Ruslen active 1656 c 1715 Presentation Tray Lord Mayor s Tray Learn More James Jacques Joseph Tissot French 1836 1902 Adam and Eve Driven From Paradise Learn More Heinrich Wilhelm Kompff active 1783 1825 Torah Finials Learn More William Anastasi American b 1933 Untitled Jew Learn More Marriage Contract
