The Golden Chamsa Ketubah

This golden and glorious Ketubah blazes in a dazzling alchemy. A Mediterranean tiled background recognizes the Grooms Israeli heritage and lineage.

The linen interior of the Chamsa is a soft and muted contrast to the intricate details of the background.

The hymn “אני לדודי ודודי לי – I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine” (Song of Songs – Shir HaShirim 6:3), a romantic declaration between husband and wife written by King Solomon, houses the initials to create a dome. This psalm evokes the intrinsic commitment, care and responsibility mutually undertaken by husband and wife in their journey through life and beyond.

The gold detailing of the initials, Ani Ledodi and the Chamsa Border radiate with a shimmering fire, sparkling in the sun. The golden colour palette and tones of this Ketubah also references Jerusalem – the eternal city, the city of Gold and in doing so affirms the couples underlying connection to this sacred and holy site.
