This limited edition Ketubah is by Jerusalem artist Archie Granot. The text adorning this ketubah decoration is an extract from a poem written for a wedding in the ghetto of Mantua in the early 17th century. It is the work of an anonymous poet and, for that wedding, was set to music for an 8 voice choir by Salamone Rossi, the most important Jewish composer of that period.
The poem begins: "Le'mi echpots la'asot yakar..." and the translation begins: "Whom should I honor? Surely these souls who enter into a union as man and wife..."
English texts on all Ketubahs are interpretations and not literal translations.
