Ketubah Discover the ketubah that touches your souls. What began as legal protection for a married woman has become a beautiful work of Judaic art, and an important part of today's Jewish wedding ceremonies. A contemporary re-imagining of the ancient law which states that a contract must be signed in order for a Jewish marriage to be binding, now sees "ketubah" contracts hanging prominently on the walls of thousands of Jewish homes across the world. Be they traditional Orthodox, interfaith, same-gender, or even non-Jewish, any couple can enjoy a ketubah that suits their beliefs, ideals and sense of style.

Chuppah A Jewish wedding ceremony takes place under a beautiful "chuppah," which is a large fabric canopy, supported by four poles. The chuppah represents the home that the bride and groom will build together as a family. There are no walls to enclose the bride and groom, symbolizing their openness to guests and the company of their community. Many couples use a tallit as their chuppah canopy, while others use elegant fabrics.

Kiddush Cup One of the first prayers at a Jewish wedding is "Kiddush," or blessing over the wine, which is then repeated during the Seven Blessings. The couple drinks the wine from a "Kiddush cup," which is often crafted from sterling silver. More contemporary Kiddush cups are made from such materials as fused glass, Nambé metal, and pewter with enamel.
Wedding Glass The groom breaks a glass as a traditional act of remembrance, and a gesture that helps to further illuminate the joy of a marriage. The breaking of the glass is most often said to symbolize the destruction of the Holy Temple, though some consider it a symbol of the end of the beloveds' single lives, and the beginning of their lives as one. This new life is sweetened by the contemporary tradition of crafting custom wedding art, which encases the broken shards of glass.

Tallit The groom traditionally wears a "tallit," the ceremonial prayer shawl, which is the garment worn during Jewish prayer. Many couples wrap themselves in the tallit (or "tallis") together during the ceremony, as a symbol of love and unity.

Contemporary Judaica

Ancient ceremony meets modern design, uniting the old and the new in Jewish observance. In harmony with the concept of "hiddur mitzvah," or "beautification of the commandments," artists from across the globe are crafting contemporary Judaica pieces to suit any taste. From quiet elegance to playful whimsy, Gallery Judaica offers information and consultation on functional Judaic art and Jewish ritual items of all kinds -- from mezuzahs and Passover Seder plates, to Tzedakah boxes and Havdallah sets, to Hanukkah menorahs and wall art. What are they? How are they used? Which is the appropriate gift? We have the answers. Let us know how we can help! Read less

After searching Ketubah designs we decided to order from Gallery Judaica. I faxed the information sheet after making the online purchase. I called to be sure they received it and the man who answered the phone could not have been nicer. He congratulated us and explained that it may take up to a month to receive the completed Ketubah because the artist had to input our specific information. Weren’t we surprised when it showed up at our door less than 2 weeks later! Thanks so much to Gallery Judaica – we would absolutely recommend them to you.

I purchased my wedding ketubah at Gallery Judaica. I was so pleased because the selection of ketubot was very large and i found just the one my bride and i loved. The staff at the gallery was very knowledgeable and helpful. I appreciated how much they knew about ketubot and their patience in helping me.
