A British calligrapher living in Jerusalem said he created a document for British Prince William's wedding in the style of a Jewish ketubah.
Michael Horton said his gift to William and fiancee Kate Middleton resembles a ketubah in that it is printed on parchment from the Jerusalem neighborhood of Mea Shearim and he used traditional inks approved by rabbis, The Jewish Chronicle reported Thursday.
However, the document differs in that Horton omitted the list of husband-to-wife obligations, which is the primary purpose of the ketubah, and instead included commemorative text in both Hebrew and English.
"For 40 years I have been doing marriage documents and a friend suggested: 'There's a big wedding coming up in London -- why don't you do something for that?'" Horton said.
Matthew Gould, Britain's ambassador to Israel, said the document will be sent to London in a diplomatic bag.
