Trieste, Italy, 1774
Art By The Jewish Museum
This ketubah was adapted from a marriage contract, from Trieste (Italy), 1774, in the collection of The Jewish Museum. The decorative frame features biblical scenes – the Binding of Isaac and the Temptation of Adam and Eve, above left and right, and Lot and his two daughters, at bottom. The scenes were probably chosen to remind couples to avoid a life of sin and to lead a life of faith. The Hebrew inscriptions within the decoration translate as follows: In cartouche: The voice of mirth, the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, the voice of the bride; (Jeremiah 33:11) Around outer edge: Who can find a virtuous woman?; (Prov. 31:10); ;Who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor of the Lord (Prov. 18:22; A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband; (Prov. 12:4); Text of Ruth 4:11-12. Around the text, in Aramaic: With a good sign and favorable fortune to the bridegroom and the bride.
