What is a Ketubah?

Rabbi Victor S. Appell
Ketubah means “written” and has come to refer to the Jewish marriage contract. An ancient document, the ketubah represented an advancement in women’s status by protecting the rights of the bride.

For a Wedding Anniversary

"I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine." God of all generations, we give thanks for the blessings that have graced our marriage, and we look back upon the day of our union with thankfulness. So may this joy be with us always: our way of life, loving and good, as we help each other bear burdens and as we share our joys.
