The first of our “Heritage Ketubah” series “Venetian Romance” transports the betrothed to the romantic canals and streets of Venice Italy. The composition of this regal and buoyant design is inspired by the famous arches of San Marco Piazza. Exquisitely rendered low relief carved ornament, Sienna and Rhodochrosite marble, honor the inspired history of Jewish Italian synagogue art and architecture. The central stained glass panel frieze reflects images of an abundant flowing stream and a majestic barren desert landscape.
All “Heritage Ketubah” designs include a written historical highlight about the Jewish community honored by this ketubah. We hope this effort broadens and enlivens our understanding of the vast legacy of Jewish art and culture throughout history.
