Description

Beth Chaim Congregation offers Art of the Ketubah: An exhibit exploring the art and history of the Jewish Marriage Contract.

A ketubah (Hebrew: כְּתוּבָּה, "written thing") is a special type of Jewish prenuptial agreement. It is considered an integral part of a traditional Jewish marriage, and outlines the rights and responsibilities of the groom, in relation to the bride.

Hiddur Mitzvah, literally meaning, “the beautification of a mitzvah,” are actions that glorify, or beautify, the observances and celebrations within Jewish tradition. The Ketubah is a significant form of Jewish ceremonial art in the tradition of hiddur mitzvah.

This exhibit offers a glimpse of Ketubot from around the world, explores the origins and history of Ketubot, and presents a focused selection of modern-day ketubot.

The exhibit is free to the public.  The exhibit runs from October 13, 2018 to February 3, 2019. Viewing hours are Monday through Friday 10:30 am - 2:30 pm.  Sunday by appointment only.
