A Karaite Ketubah

The traditional Karaite Ketubah requires the signature of 10 Jewish witnesses. And in the Karaite tradition, men or women count as witnesses. Here is a video of how my wife and I integrated our  varying Jewish customs into our Ketubah.

If you would like to integrate a Karaite custom into your upcoming life-cycle events, please drop me a note.

    The video was nice.
    What also crossed my mind was this question: Do you wear a kippah because of the Mishna, Talmud or the Tenach-I cannot find the custom written in the Tenach?
    Take care,

    • Excellent question. I think the Kippah is even a modern innovation in the Rabbinic sense. There is no doubt that today we wear kippot because of Rabbinic influence. The larger question is whether men (or people generally) covered their heads in biblical times, and whether such head covering was required (versus merely cultural).
