Menorah by Ardyn Halter
This subtle Ketubah is on acid-free paper tinted the color of parchment,which shows its themes to delicate but rich effect: joined rings and thenever-ending knot interspersed with joyful floral bands. The Seven Species(vine, fig, wheat, barley, pomegranate, olive, and palm) form part of theoutermost illumination. Birds perch on the two floral vines, which symbolize thebride and groom, joined through their wedding and recorded on their Ketubah. Inthe lower left-hand corner a bee pollinates the flowers. At the top of theKetubah the Menorah represents symbolically the continuity of Jewish tradition.Just beneath it are the words: Ani Le Dodi Ve Dodi Li ('I am my beloved's and mybeloved is mine') from the Song of Songs. Other quotations are from the Book ofProverbs. 24" x 18"
