Our Ketubah texts

“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine” 

The words we speak have weight and meaning, and those we speak to our beloved on our wedding day deserve special attention and care. Your ketubah may be an expression of love, a binding contract, a sincere promise, or words spoken from the heart. It’s our privilege to offer a selection of beautifully-written ketubah texts -- one just right for you. 

When you work with us, our deep well of knowledge is at your service. With native-level Hebrew and English skills, coupled with a thorough understanding of the finer points of Jewish law and tradition, we’re here to ensure that your ketubah text carries the meaning and significance it richly deserves. 

We proudly embrace our Jewish religious tradition, and are honored to serve a diverse array of loving couples from every walk of life, including Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, Reconstructionst, LGBTQ, interfaith, nonaffiliated, and secular couples. 

Don’t see what you’re looking for here? Feel free to write your own wording. As part of our commitment to deliver an individually-tailored and personally meaningful experience, we are happy to work with our clients’ custom ketubah texts.

We speak your language! In addition to Hebrew and English, we’ve prepared ketubahs with Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Korean, and Arabic texts. Contact us to discuss your project.


Hebrew Text

Traditional

The traditional Aramaic ketubah text has survived more or less unchanged for millennia, with only slight variations. For Orthodox weddings, we use the text published by the RCA (Rabbinical Council of America.) Our Conservative text -- which includes the Lieberman clause -- is published by the RA (Rabbinical Assembly).

Modern-Traditional

These modern-era ketubah texts are both egalitarian and steeped in Jewish tradition. For couples seeking engagement with Jewish text and tradition as adapted to contemporary values.

Modern-Reform

Personal and expressive, these texts are appropriate for a wide range of couples, including Reform, interfaith, and nonaffiliated. Humanist texts are used with the express permission of the Society for Humanistic Judaism. Our Modern texts, beautifully written by Ruth, are available exclusively from us.
