Rainbow Doves Ketubah
by Sivia Katz
The trees in this Ketubah are the trees of the land of Israel, and the doves are the representatives of peace. The combined sun and moon represent the eternal bond created between a husband and wife at marriage, while the rainbow captures the variety of ways that husband and wife are linked to each other. The surrounding quote is from a traditional Israeli folksong.
