Hollywood Celeb’s Wedding Ketubah Stolen
As an art lover I also enjoy seeing the beautiful ketubah (wedding contract) that a couple selects. These ketubahs are usually the first major art purchase a young couple makes and they hang with pride in the couple’s home. Before affixing my signature to the ketubah I always take a few moments to look at the creative design, which tells me quite a bit about the couple.
Last week the ketubah went mainstream with more than just a passing mention on national TV in a video clip that is going viral. Ginnifer Goodwin, the actress known mostly for her role on HBO’s former series “Big Love,” appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Wednesday night. Goodwin, the Jewish actress from Memphis who was a member of the Jewish teen youth groups BBYO and NFTY, was asked by Jimmy Kimmel if she’s Jewish.
Goodwin, who last year explained that she only recently reconnected with her Jewish faith, explained that she is Jewish (her mother’s Jewish, but not her father) and that her husband Josh Dallas is not Jewish. The couple stars together in the movie “Once Upon a Time.” The pregnant Goodwin told a very funny story about how her wedding ketubah went missing the day of the couple’s wedding two weeks earlier on April 12, 2014.
