Museum seeks ketubot, bridal attire for exhibit

The Jewish History Museum is seeking ketubot (marriage contracts), wedding attire and wedding photos to be loaned to the museum for its third annual Ketubah Exhibit, which will be held in January 2011.

The ketubot may be from any state or country and ‘need not be fancy’ to be included in the exhibit, says Eileen Warshaw, executive director of the museum. Wedding attire may be any article(s) worn by the bride or groom during their Jewish wedding ceremony and need not be in perfect condition. Photographs may be black and white or color, formal or snapshots. Items from multiple generations of one family are most welcome, adds Warshaw.
