Celestial energy emanates from this illumination. The delicate rendering of the zenith phase of the moon is embedded in the language of the marriage covenant. As the lunar cycle influences the rhythms of our very lives so the Jewish calendar honors the natural order of our common human experience. Marriage, in this context, represents the hub of our daily efforts. The multifaceted star composition creates the notion that our existence embraces many dimensions, all of which interact and influence our everyday experience. The essence of this ketubah is beautifully expressed in Psalm 89:38 “It shall be established for ever like the moon, and the witness in the sky is sure.”
