Now available for your ketubah – Secular Humanistic II Text

The International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism writes a mean ketubah text. I know, because their original ketubah text has consistently been one of the most popular options here at Ink with Intent. That’s why I was so excited to discover that they’ve now released a second ketubah text that is every bit as beautiful as the first. I immediately called them up, and they were kind enough to allow me to offer their lovely text as an option to my clients. Thank you IISHJ for your generosity!

Just like all our texts here at Ink with Intent, this text option is available in three versions: bride-groom, bride-bride and groom-groom. It’s written in Modern Hebrew, although couples often choose to add the ancient biblical phrase “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine” to their ketubah as well. You can read the entire English translation of the Secular Humanistic II ketubah text here:

On the __________ day of the month of ______________ in the year ____________ of the Jewish calendar, corresponding to the ________________ day of the month of _____________ in the year ______________ of the secular calendar as recorded in __________________ the beloveds _____________________________ and ____________________________ entered into this Covenant of Marriage. We pledged to nurture, trust, and respect each other throughout our married life together. We shall be open and honest, understanding and accepting, loving and forgiving, and loyal to one another. We promise to work together to build a harmonious relationship of equality. We shall respect each other’s uniqueness and help one another grow to our fullest potential. We will comfort and support each other through life’s sorrows and joys. Together, we shall create a home filled with learning, laughter, and compassion, a home wherein we will honor each other’s cherished family traditions and values. Let us join hands to help build a world filled with peace and love.
