A Garden of Love Ketubah
by Veronique Jonas
The central theme of this Ketubah is a beautiful flowering garden, planted and nurtured with love, the word “ahava” in Hebrew is sprinkled throughout the flowers. The garden is a metaphor for the home that this couple builds together, beginning on their first day together under the Chuppah. This Ketubah is painted in a square format, which to the artist symbolizes stability- all sides are equal, both participants in this contract having equal weight and worth.
