A young couple wanted a modern ketubah, one that reflected both their love of Torah and their life together in Colorado. The resulting design incorporated the Rocky Mountains, evergreens and aspen leaves. Across the top is the traditional phrase, "Ani l'dodi v'dodi li," I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine from Song of Songs 6:3.
The text of the ketubah, written by scribe Robert Saslow, incorporates this beautiful text from Isaiah 54:10, "The mountains may move and the hills may be shaken, but my trust shall not leave you..."
