Planning Your Jew-ish Wedding: Creating Your Perfect Ketubah – Online
May 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT$15
Creating Your Perfect Ketubah
Historically, the ketubah was a legal document that certified that a Jewish marriage had taken place. In modern wedding ceremonies, we see ketubahs that are works of art and signify the set of promises that partners make to each other. Some ketubahs have more traditional language, some have more modern text written specifically for interfaith couples, and other couples opt to write their own ketubah language. Join Molly Kazin Marshall and Rabbi Steven Philp for a workshop that will help you craft the perfect ketubah for your marriage.
This session is part two of a four-week series on planning a Jew-ish/interfaith wedding. Register for one session, a few, or all four! Individual sessions are $15/couple. Register for all four events at a discounted price of $45/couple.
