Ketubah History
THE KETUBAH - the marriage contract - was introduced into the Jewish wedding ceremony approximately 2,500 years ago. It was written in Aramaic, the spoken language of the Jews of the time, so that everyone would understand the contract. To this day Aramaic has remained the language of the traditional Ketubah . In the contract, the husband undertakes to honor, support and maintain his wife, and to live with her in affection and amity. He also states what she will receive in the event of divorce or of his death. The ketubah was developed to protect the Jewish wife and to ensure her future.

The traditional Ketubah text has remained basically unchanged for centuries, and is the text utilized at Orthodox weddings. The Conservative movement added a clause, the Lieberman clause, to the traditional Aramaic text to require a husband to grant his wife a religious divorce upon obtaining a civil divorce so that each of the parties could remarry under Jewish law. Today's Reform movement typically does not use the traditional text. Instead, Reform texts reflect the movement's more equal treatment of men and women and incorporate mutual affirmations and promises. Reform Ketubah texts do not qualify as legal documents but rather serve more as a statement of the couple's vows to each other.

The ketubah document has attracted artistic adornment through the centuries and has become a significant expression of Jewish art. With the use of calligraphy to ornament the text itself and a vast host of designs to enhance and beautify the border, including paper cutting, the ketubah has evolved into a unique document expressing a couple's life together.
