Description
One reel to reel tape (Copied onto C86-60). Interview with ketubah maker Nancy Greenberg. 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 the wife financial rights upon her husband's death. The contracts are designed with art and motifs of the local Jewish community. In the interview she discusses her education (Masters in Arts); her family history; history of ketubah; process for creating them; Jewish marriage rites; training she recieved; and contract styles. For images of Greenberg see S 1577, box 17, folder 7. The Dade Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 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.
