A cogent and compelling examination of the history andsignificance of the Jewish marriage contract, the Ketubah,with extensive notes in Hebrew and English. As Epsteinnotes in the preface, the Ketubah offers an excellentintroduction to the character of Jewish marriage because itis not a sentimental, rhetorical or subjective text.Instead, it is "a legal document embodying the essentialpoints agreed upon by the parties and sanctioned by the lawas to the manner of their living together as husband andwife" (2).
