Loving Connections Ketubah
by Dafna Jalon
Two trees stretch towards each other, bending protectively over the circle of the text that binds them together while, simultaneously, reaching for the swirling lights in the sky above. These vibrant stained-glass images symbolize a union which encourages both individual and mutual growth within the enduring circle of a couple’s love.
