Make Your Own Ketubah

If you are thinking of ways to honor your Jewish heritage in your wedding ceremony, you want to consider a ketubah. The signing the ketubah, or marriage contract, during the ceremony is a lovely way to acknowledge your heritage, and serves as a meaningful unity ritual for the couple.

If you're the crafty sort, New Ketubah offers detailed instructions to make your own ketubah on the website. This detailed section offers information to get you started with a variety of articles from Hebrew lettering to framing your ketubah. There is even a DIY Ketubah Kit to download! You can't ask for more.

But, if you're not up for another project before your wedding, New Ketubah has gorgeous handcrafted ketubahs which can be ordered online. See the collection of their designs here.

The images here are samples of just two of the designs available.
