Ketuba - Marriage Document

Ketubot prepared in English and Hebrew

A Ketuba or Kesuba is a marriage document that spells out the obligation the man has towards the woman. Since the man has the obligation to get married, he therefore must provide her with certain securities that will protect her from unfortunate possible situations that could harm her.


In order to fill in a Jewish marriage certificate, certain information is needed. The order will be in the order in which they appear in the Ketuba.

Many include the Hebrew names of the mothers as well.  One of reasons why we include the father's names , is that we follow the identification method in the Torah. But remember, the mother determines the religion of the person. There is nothing more important than that!!
