Anyone who is in love will understand the emotion behind this Ketubah: the glow that grows from a loving couple and seems to surround them with a special light. The Baal Shem Tov said, “From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls who are destined to be together find each other, the streams of light flow together, and a single, brighter light goes forth from that united being.”
