Dove Arch Ketubah
by Sivia Katz
The doves of peace, mated for life, fly beneath the view of “Migdal David”, King David’s Tower, and the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. “Wear me as a seal upon your heart, as a sign upon your hand” is a quote from Song of Songs. The age old quote, “Yet shall be heard in the cities of Judea and within the walls of Jerusalem, the voice of gladness, the voice of joy, the voice of the groom and the voice of the bride,” arches atop the Ketubah.
