Description: The text around the work, itself inspired by Middle East ornamentation, was traditionally recited at the weddings of the Jews of Yemen. It translates:
"In the name of the Merciful, full of mercy. In the name of Him to whom greatness belongs, (whose name) is exalted above every blessing and praise. In a most auspicious time and a commended season, with strength, repute and glory, delight and exultation, grace, favor and compassion fulfillment of every wish to the bridegroom and the bride and the entire assembled community, the chosen seed of Israel. May they rejoice and be joyful, blossom and spread like fragrance. May they build and prosper, build and prosper. "
English texts on all Ketubahs are interpretations and not literal translations.
