Animals in Ketubah Art (part 1)

There’s a long history of animals in ketubah art, both as symbols and as ornament. You’ve got your lions, bears, deer, doves, fish, as well as all the symbols on the zodiac (only backwards).

Ketubah Signing Ceremony

In a  Jewish wedding, there is a ketubah signing ceremony before the actual wedding where two witnesses sign the marriage contract.
