The outer text bordering the ketubah from the Book of Ruth 4:11-12, describes the marriage of Ruth to Boaz. The inner text, traditionally recited at the weddings of the Jews of Herat, Afganistan reads:

With a good omen.(The Hebrew terms appear in alphabetical order]: A sign of light; A sign of blessing; A sign of rejoicing; A sign of delight; A sign of glory; A sign of fellowship; A sign of song; A sign of life; A sign of goodness; A sign of salvation; A sign of honour; A sign of companionship; A sign of food; A sign of comfort; A sign of forgiveness; A sign of help; A sign of fruitfulness; A sign of righteousness; A sign of uprightness; A sign of good health; A sign of peace; A sign of Torah; A sign of prayer. evoke the good fortune that will be the lot of the happy couple.

Every Jewish celebration is tinged with memories. Bidden to remember the destruction of the Temple, we can never forget the calamities in the Diaspora that culminated in the holocaust. Then central design below the ketuba is a memorial to both tragedies and is inspired by the holy ark of the wooden synagogue in Wolpa, Poland, which was destroyed by the Germans in 1939.

The pomegranates derive from the coins from the period of the Bar Cochba revolt against the Romans are also a symbol of fertility. The single fruit facing two others recollects Jewish belief that every child is born in covenant between G-d and both parents.

The Torah crown above the ketuba text contains the Magen David - the Star of David.
