Nancy Greenberg with her ketubah

Date
1985-08
Description
Three color slides. Jewish marriage contract art is also known as Katubut/Katabbah/Katubah. Jewish law requires men to give women a marriage contract on their wedding day. A ketubah, usually written in Yiddish, guarantees her financial rights upon his death. The contracts are designed with art and motifs of the local Jewish community. The Dade Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1985 and 1986 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalas, Nancy Nusz and Laurie Sommers in order to identify folk arts and folk artists for the special folklife area at the 34th Annual Florida Folk Festival. The traditions are mainly Haitian, Jamaican, Mexican, Bahamian, Cuban and Jewish and cover a wide range of skills and art forms.
