Richmond, Virginia, 1891
Art By The Jewish Museum
This ketubah was adapted from a marriage contract from Richmond, Virginia, 1891, in the collection of The Jewish Museum. It was originally written in English, but included traditional Hebrew verses that refer to marital happiness. A depiction of a ceremony is featured above the text. Rabbi Edward Nathan Calisch (1865-1946), a prominent religious and civic figure in Richmond, Virginia, active in the American Reform movement, officiate the wedding. He was the rabbi of Congregation Beth Ahabah in Richmond from 1891, the year he issued the marriage contract, until his death in 1946. The congregation was founded by German Jews in 1841 and housed the first public school in the city. The text reads: “For a good sign/good luck” “The voice of joy, the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride” (Jeremiah 33:11)
