Ketubahs White as Snow

Ketubahs represent a pure and unblemished bond in the eyes of God. They signify peace and understanding and a lasting commitment. Marriage is a beautiful thing and ketubahs are a witness to it. One other thing embodies all those things, and that is the color white.

The color of perfection, white embodies values of purity, innocence, wholeness, completion, and new beginnings. Its usage differs by culture and circumstances, but unanimously touches upon occasions of significance.

In most cultures, white is associated with marriage to mark a pure passage of two souls merging together on a new beginning. In Judaism, “Shesh” (white) without any alterations is the true color of the light and was the symbol of physical and intellectual purity.

White Ketubahs are not devoid of any details of art. They are equally rich and intricate as other colored ketuabhs. Rather the white background and ink, provides depth and substance to the ketubah.

They can be paired well with other white or colored items. Highlighting portions of a white ketubah, such as the signatures, in a bold color makes it stand out and provide contrast. A colored frame can also bring a touch of life to a simple ketubah.

You can find a large collection of white ketubahs on This is Not a Ketubah. 

A Font To Remember Ketubah is embellished with elegant calligraphy against a plain background. The tiny details and style of text radiate an impression of grace, elegance, and sophistication. This Ketubah brings modern art back to basics with the beautifully simple design.

Two entwined rings sit atop a plain white background in The Entwined Rings Ketubah. The minimal design centers focus on the colorful rings and the meaning they hold. As Leonardo da Vinci once said, “For those colours which you wish to be beautiful, always first prepare a pure white ground.”
