The artwork celebrates the warm and loving home inaugurated by the Jewish wedding. The flowers and fruit presented against the blue and gold border symbolize qualities found in the Jewish home. The papercut border presents impressions of the Jerusalem skyline. Scattered domes and building shapes bear the beloved Seven Wedding Blessings in micrography, symbolizing the embrace of the new family with the greater Jewish community. The decorative calligraphic border bears the text of Psalm 128 celebrating the flourishing Jewish family.
