Arch of Jerusalem Ketubah by Toronto artist Laya Crust
17” x 24”
Lithograph, limited edition comes in two versions: This version has English around the borders.
The arch in the center of this Ketubah is inspired by one found in a medieval European Machzor supporting a scene of Jerusalem. Within the arch are inscribed "We will place Jerusalem above our chiefest joys" and " I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine." The rolling landscape of Israel is depicted in the background, from Mount Hermon, the Galil and the Golan in the north, down to the Arava and the Strait of Aqaba in the south. The sky depicts the passage of time - moving from sunrise and daylight to sunset and night. The tree within the arch represents the cycle of life as depicted by the four seasons.

What you Need to Know:
You need to know your name, your father's name, your partner's name, and his father's name. Check the names... We need your Hebrew names and, if you are having an English text, your English names. Traditionally (i.e. with the Orthodox text), a Hebrew name is your name and your father's name. With all other texts, people include their mother's name. And always speak to your Rabbi about which text is acceptable.
