About the Ceremony
Just prior to the wedding ceremony will be the signing of the Ketubah. This will take place with a smaller group of people in a side room.
Ketubah means "writing" or "written" and refers to the document that is signed by witnesses before and often read during a Jewish wedding. Traditionally, a ketubah served as a kind of premarital contract, outlining a bride's ongoing rights: food, clothing, and even sex should be provided during the course of the marriage. The ketubah also specified her rights in the case of her husband's death or their divorce. It was given from the groom to the bride and remained her possession. We have chosen to go with a more modern and egalitarian ketubah, one that sets things on a more equal footing. It is also written in modern Hebrew with an English translation.
