Seasons of Joy Ketubah
Seasons of Joy - This ketubah is inspired and pays honor to the great wooden synagogues of Eastern Europe which dotted the countryside of Eastern Europe between the 16th and 19th Centuries. The lower portion of the ketubah is reminiscent of the illumination one might have found gracing the interior ceilings and walls of they synagogues. Depicted is the annual cycle of Jewish festivals: Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkoth, Simcha Torah, Chanukah, Shabbat, Tu B’Shevat, Purim, Pesach, The Omer and Shavuot. Two Trees growing together represent trees of life, the wedding chuppah, and the intertwining of two lives. The upper portions show the decorative wood exterior typical of these synagogues, and serves as a symbol of a family home. The prayer in gold at the top is the Shehechiyahnu: Blessed are you, Adonai, our eternal God, Sovereign of the universe, for giving us life, for sustaining us, and for allowing us to reach this season.
