Indian Dreams Ketubah

This intricate, very special ketubah is inspired by the delicate patterns of Henna. The practice of painting the bride's skin with elaborate, highly complex patterns of Henna is regarded as a blessing, and is applied for luck as well as joy and beauty. This practice is popular in many countries including India, Morocco and Yemen. Jewish bridal traditions can be very complex, particularly in Yemen, where the Jewish bridal henna process can take four or five days to complete, with multiple applications.
The Henna Ceremony, once celebrated several days before the wedding primarily by Jews from Morocco and Yemen, is now popular in Israel and the United States as well. This joyful, colorful ceremony is meant to bring good luck to the bride and groom. I was inspired by the beautiful spirituality of this tradition and by the delicate patterns of Henna to create this unique, modern ketubah with a traditional touch.
