Something Old to Look Like New

We’re very happy to announce that the Museum was just chosen for a 2010 Conservation Treatment Grant Award that will go toward conservation of wedding contracts (ketubbot). The treatment is to be done by paper conservator Caroline Rieger at Rieger Art Conservation. A ketubbah can be a simple paper or very elaborate hand-painted work, but they are always precious in the eyes of their owners and to our Museum which celebrates Jewish culture and continuity.

*image: just one of the many ketubbot in our collection. Learn more about this and other items in the collection.
