Date 5766 (2006)
At the time of this marriage, missiles were being fired down upon Israel onto the northern settlements close to where this wedding was to take place, and therefore this ketuba was a bit different from all others.
At the time of writing of the text for this ketuba, the location of the huppa was left out until the day of the wedding because of the security measures. The location was decided upon by the family at the very last minute and it was at that time only that Norman could write the location. The artist also illuminated this symbolically by surrounding the name of the location with some red, highlighting the words.
Visible is the space left to write the wedding location.
As the couple met in the navy and both serve in this branch of the Israel Army, they wanted some kind of boat with sails to be on the water.
The groom is also a musician and songwriter.
The couple's monogram (an anchor and rope) sits above the musical notes for an original piece that the groom wrote for Psalm 137, "If I forget thee O Jerusalem ...".
