Shanghai, China, 1946
Art By The Jewish Museum
This ketubah was adapted from a marriage certificate, from Shanghai (China), 1946, in the collection of The Jewish Museum. Decorated with a cherry tree in blossom and two birds, the original included the names of two officers conducting the ceremony as well as the name of the witness and his congratulations to the bride and groom. Although it was not a Jewish marriage contract, this Chinese secular document was an interesting testimony to Jewish history. During World War II, the original couple fled from Europe to Shanghai, where they married. The ceremony took place in a tea room on Chusan Road in Shanghai.
