This family tree design, painted originally in soft pastels as part of the new “Pastel Series”, by Susan Cone Porges, allows the couple to include their family members in their ketubah. Nestled in the foliage on top are small open areas of light, meant to be inscribed by hand with the names of loved ones. It’s a wonderful way to keep parents, grandparents, or even children close and a part of the tradition of the ketubah.
