How to Prepare for Your Ketubah Text
One of the most significant custom of the Jewish during weddings is a Ketubah. This can be closely compared to signing of contract which must be signed by the married couple in from of the witnesses or the rabbi.
The Jewish Ketubah is not only created as a symbol for weddings, it originated as something to protect the wife and the child’s life in the future. It basically takes care and affirm the rights of the wife with regards to her financial care in case something bad happens to the marriage ends up in a divorce or if the couple are separated.
Aside from designing the artwork of your Ketubah, it is also important to remember that it should be carefully thought out. This is a big part of your marriage life and your wedding day. The Ketubah text is usually not set on priority unlike the designs that people pick however, it must be remembered that it is equally important.
The Ketubah, also known as a marriage contract, is going to be yours forever. This means that aside from wanting it to look perfectly, you must also make sure that the text includes what you really want to say and that it is well written. Additionally, the rabbi has to approve it. Before coming up with your final Ketubah text, it is highly recommended that you ask advice from your rabbi.
There are lots of Ketubah that you can find online if you are trying to find one. This way you can choose from a lot of different designs. You must have a thorough and adequate reading for you to have an idea of what is out there. You must ask for advice from your rabbi who will be the one to officiate once you find a Ketubah that you and your partner love and chosen to use.
Find the right Ketubah that you and your partner loves but having a text that is different because of the artist is one of the problems you might encounter in this type of contract. In this case, all you have to do is to ask the artist to make a new one with the same the same and with the text that you want. If you cannot find a Ketubah that you and your partner likes, one of your options is to make your own. This can be considered as a special bonding and intimate time for you and your partner as both of you will be writing it together.
When doing this, you can ask help from your rabbi to translate the text for you since the usual writing used in Ketubah is not English or any other modern, but Hebrew.
