This Ketubah seeks to honor the synagogues of Eastern Europe that were destroyed during WWII. The lower portion of the ketubah is reminiscent of the illumination one might have found gracing the interior ceilings and walls of the synagogues. Depicted is the annual cycle of Jewish festivals: (from the upper left) Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Chanukah, Shabbat, Tu B'Shevat, Purim, Pesach, The Omer and Shavuot. The two trees growing together represent trees of life, the wedding chuppah and the intertwining of two lives. The upper portion shows the decorative wood exterior typical of these synagogues, and serves as a symbol of a family home. The circular window shows the new moon, which marks each Rosh Chodesh, the beginning of every month of the Jewish calendar. The prayer in gold at the top is the Shehecheyanu.
