The National Library's collection of ketubot includes almost 1800 original ketubot, from all over the Jewish world, both in manuscript and print form. The earliest ketubah in the collection is from 1023 c.e.- a document from the Cairo Genizah. The National Library collection also contains 226 illustrated ketubot from Italy and even a fragment from a Spanish ketubah, written just a few years before the Expulsion.
The site presented here includes over 4200 ketubot from a number of collections, including the National Library's collection. The concentration of the ketubot onto one site allows those with an interest in ketubot as well as scholars to gain a wide, comprehensive and in depth look at the ketubah as a Jewish document, a Jewish creation and a vital historical source.
