The Love Knot Ketubah
by Veronique Jonas
An abstract, lyrical declaration of a couple’s love for one another… The vibrant reds and pinks symbolize the passion and love that the couple feels. Two trees intertwine and become one, as two separate individuals join together in marriage. A Torah scroll wraps around them, keeping them grounded in their Judaism. The quote on the scroll comes from Song of Songs and means ”My beloved Lies among the Lilies.” Two doves joyfully tie the love knot. Intertwining wedding rings form the base for a set of Shabbat candles and give balance to the couples lives by perpetuating the Jewish home.
