Ketubah Texts

“From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, a single brighter light goes from their united being.” – Baal Shem Tov

EleyOri works with couples with all sorts of religious or non-religious and cultural backgrounds from the very traditional to the modern and alternative.
The options for Ketubah texts can seem endless. To make it easy,  EleyOri offers a succinct and comprehensive selection of text types that are easy to tailor to your specific requirements and vision. The Ketubah text you select should be informed by the type of ceremony you are having and should be something you discuss with your officiant before making a selection. More modern or alternative ceremonies will allow for greater flexibility and customization in the text selection.
Note that any changes or revisions that you may want to make to your text are included in the purchase price.

MODERN KETUBAH TEXTS

EleyOri provides texts that are appropriate for couples of all faiths and backgrounds, including “English Only” and “Mix and Max” text options.

TRADITIONAL KETUBAH TEXTS

ORTHODOX
Translations: Aramaic only
The Orthodox text is written in Aramaic, a Semitic language closely related to Hebrew. It can also be available with an English section. The English portion of the Ketubah is not a translation of the Aramaic, rather, it describes the circumstances of the wedding (date, location, name of the couple).

SEPHARDIC
Translations: Aramaic only
The Sephardic text is the text required by most wedding officiants who are affiliated with the Sephardic movement. This text is based on wording from the Talmud Yerushalmi and is written entirely in Aramaic. The text does not include an English section.

CONSERVATIVE
Translations: Aramaic Only
The Conservative Ketubah text is offered in Aramaic with custom text in English. It is essentially the same as the Orthodox text and thus is written in Aramaic. However, the Conservative text includes an additional provision called the Lieberman Clause.

It is strongly recommended that you have your Ketubah proofread by your rabbi or cantor.

WRITE YOUR OWN

CUSTOM TEXT
Translations: Hebrew and English (✓ Mix and Match)
This text option is for couples who wish to use their own wording rather than one of the standard texts offered by EleyOri. I will work with you to transform your wedding/commitment vows into a work of art that speaks to your values and personality as a lasting work of art.

    • To get started with this option, select your Ketubah Design and send a typed, electronic copy of your text to eleyori.art@gmail.com
    • Note any custom texts must be free of copyright restrictions.

MIX AND MATCH
Appropriate for: Interfaith, Reform, Same Sex, Secular, Write Your Own
With so many options, it can be hard to choose just one type of text for your Ketubah. This option allows you to incorporate pieces of text from a variety of Ketubah texts and much more to truly make it yours!
Mix and match options:
-parts from different ketubot
-make changes to the text
-add a quote or poem you like
-write your own words
This text option is highly customizable. I will work closely with you to create your perfect Ketubah. It is always recommended that you check with your officiant before customizing your text to be sure you meet any requirements you might need for your Ketubah.
