An interesting collection of marriage contracts (Ketubot) is now on view at the Museum of the Jewish Theological Seminary. The documents are beautifully illuminated in vivid colors. Included in the collection is also a Samaritan marriage contract and one which comes from the sect of the Karaites.

The exhibition is open to the public daily, except Friday and Saturday, from 10 A.M. till 5 P.M.
