Description: The Ahava Papercut Ketubah has grown from the classic earlier version (The Papercut Ketubah - still available.) Above the text is the word Ahava (love, in Hebrew). Flanking and below the text is a Magen David pattern in fine paper filigree, itself surrounded by a second border of floral vine culminating in two small rectangles of roses, seen from above.
The next border out contains large sections of The Seven Species: Fig, Wheat, Barley, Palm, Olive, Vine, and Pomegranate. The Seven Species reflect the seven blessings over the bride from the wedding ceremony under the Huppah. They symbolize growth, fecundity and a connection to the real qualities of life. A Jewish tradition links the Seven Species to the seven attributes of life as they appear in the Book of the Zohar: Eternity; Splendor; Essence; Kingdom; Glory; Kindness and Wisdom.
The central pomegranate tree is capped with the embracing line from The Song of Songs: I am my beloved s and my beloved is mine.
Illustrated here with a cream backing. This ketubah is also available with the following alternative backings: cobalt blue, beige, cream or magenta. Specify backing color below.
