Venice, Italy, 1614
Art By The Jewish Museum
This ketubah was adapted from one of the earliest decorated Jewish marriage contracts from Italy (1614) and the earliest in the collection of The Jewish Museum. The bride and groom belonged to very prominent Sephardi families. As customary in Italian marriage contracts, the original text included a contract of marriage on the right and the articles of engagement, or tena’im, on the left. Their framing through paired horseshoe arches suggests Spanish influence. The border around the text reads: And all the people that were in the gate and the elders said: We are witnesses. The Lord make the woman that is to come into your house like Rachel and Leah, which two did build the house of Israel, and do you worthily in Ephrath and be famous in Bethlehem; and let your house be like the house of Peretz (Ruth 4:11-12a).
