Traditional Marriage Covenant

The ketubah,or Hebrew marriage covenant, has been a tradition since ancient times. The intent of this tradition is powerful, and its meaning universal. Under Jewish law, the traditional ketubah may be used to unite in marriage a Jewish man and a Jewish woman only. But many Jews engaged to non-Jews covet the sentiment and tradition that the signing of the ketubah lends to the wedding ceremony. The Good Company has created ketubot especially for interfaith couples. A rabbi adapted the text and collaborated with artists and specialists in typography and fine printing to produce these unique pieces. The egalitarian style clearly expresses a couple's promise to respect each other's heritages. The words permit both partners to feel comfortable about signing the wedding document. These are beautiful art pieces, a keepsake and the perfect gift to reflect love and support.

Words of Love

The Hebrew quote (with English translation) inscribed on our ketubot affirming the power of mingling lights, was written by Rabbi Israel Ba-al Shem Tov in the 18th century. "From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, their streams of light flow together and a single, brighter light goes forth from their united being."

The text of the ketubah is designed to reflect the egalitarian nature of a successful marriage partnership. It incorporates the realities, hopes, dreams and ambitions of a contemporary couple and recognizes their diverse traditions. The Daisy and Mediterranean styles also offer English only versions.
