Creative Commons Ketubah and Tenaim Texts

This doesn't belong in a programming blog, but I wanted this out there on the web.

I recently had a need for the Hebrew text of the traditional marriage documents, the ketubah and tenaim, and was very surprised that they are nowhere to be found, at least with my Google-fu. So I transcribed them and offer them with a liberal license to the world. The ketubah text is from Goldin's 1939 Hamadrikh and the tenaim text is that of haRav Feinstein (example).

    B”H I BELIEVE that the Sh’tar HaT’nayim and the K’suvah, USUALLY, start: “B’ezras Hashem Yisbarech, U L’Mazal Tov!” I Googled it and found the one on showing it in the text!

    The phrase “b’ezras Hashem” is often written at the start of a document but it is not part of the text itself.

    Your offering the kesuba and tenaim in formatted usable text is a valuable asset and I thank you much for your effort and initiative.

    Thanks for the feedback. I initially typed them in for my daughter’s wedding (just to have a backup :) and I’m glad someone else found them useful.

    Thanks so much for posting these, especially in the editable formats! Very helpful for my own use, and I’m sure many other people will find these useful in the future as well! I’ll be sure to bookmark this page and pass along the link to any who might find it useful!
