Seasons of Joy Ketubah, by Robert Saslow


Size: 19″ x 29″
Medium: Lithograph

The wooden synagogues of Eastern Europe were architectural wonders. This ketubah seeks to honor these monuments. 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 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 the family home. The circular window shows the new (empty) moon, marking each Rosh Chodesh, the beginning of every month of the Jewish year. The prayer in gold at the top is the Shehechiyanu: Blessed are You, Adonai, our eternal God, Sovereign of the universe, for giving us life, for sustaining us, and for allowing us to reach this season.
