Jewish Artwork has always had a few themes throughout the centuries, and the famed Seven Species are part of that! If you head over to the Ketubah Gallery, you’ll notice a stunning mix of color and dramatic flare, that our Collective is so excited to share! So of course that got us thinking: what exactly do the Seven Species refer to?
Both in the Torah and in Jewish imagination, the “Shiv’at Ha-Minim” or Seven Species have been a trademark of the land of Israel since it was promised to our Biblical kin! Here’s the test: Can you list the Seven Species? Here’s a hint: they’re mostly fruits, but there’s a few zingers you might not be prepared for! See the bottom of the post of the answers!
You and your fiancé(e) don’t need to be agricultural aficionados to appreciate the rich tones and imagery of fertility, prosperity, and bounty cultivated by the Seven Species. But if you love mixing modern and traditional to find your way in Judaism, we think you’ll love it! Instead, you can just reflect on the pure joy and excitement of your wedding day, as you sign your beautiful and bold traditional-yet-modern Ketubah. A sweet start to your lives together, filled with bold color your family will absolutely love!
In fact, the Seven Species aren’t just limited to the Jewish Tradition, and we’ve already had a few couples interested in an Interfaith Ketubah who absolutely loved it! As the Holy Land of Christians and Jews alike, Israel has long spoken to the soul of folks of many faiths!
