There was an article published yesterday in the New York Times about the growing popularity of ketubahs among non-Jews. I have always thought the ketubah was such a great tradition- so meaningful and beautiful- that it made sense for more people to use it in their wedding ceremonies. After all, there is nothing like having a permanent embodiment of the words you spoke to each other on that first day of your shared life. The idea that you would have those words in your home as a touchstone to the foundation of your relationship is totally natural. The article highlighted Christian couples using a ketubah as part of a reaching out toward Jewish traditions (I have met Christians who hold annual Seders as well) within their Christian practice, but I have also sold ketubahs to Quaker couples, who have all their wedding guests sign the ketubah as witnesses.
It was really great to read about this growing trend. I have always felt happy and honored to make this work and the idea that this beautiful practice is spreading beyond the Jewish community just makes me happier to be a part of it.
