Blue Forest Ketubah
by Judith Joseph
A clearing in the forest. Majestic trees arch towards each other like lovers, forming a marriage canopy. In the center, celestial blue reminds us of the ultimate huppah of heaven. Stars peek through the upper branches: it is an enchanted evening and daylight, all in one.
