A Very Special Ketubah
Perhaps you do not know what a Ketubah is. I didn’t.It is considered an integral part of a traditional Jewish marriage. It outlines the responsibilities of the groom in relation to the bride. It is a sacred vow. A commitment.
When Congregation B’nai B’rith (Santa Barbara) was looking for a special way to acknowledge those who make a planned gift or are leaving a bequest to the Synagogue, they wanted a name that would resonate with the congregation. A name of deep meaning.
They decided on naming their society— Children of the Covenant. The name represents a commitment one makes. A hallowed pledge. What could possibly be more appropriate.
Those who let Congregation B’nai B’rith know of their intention receive a personalized, framed, original piece of art— the Ketubah. Very special. Consequential.
Those who have heard me speak on the subject know that I disdain the term Legacy Society or Heritage Society. That’s only because they are so common and don’t symbolize the character and mission of the organization. Think of a name that affirms and asserts your purpose and the future.
For B’nai B’rith, the Ketubah is very special.
