STAM 101: Kesubos

“Sacred works” are exclusively defined as: Sifrei Torah, tefilin, mezuzos and kisvei kodesh (which include scrolls of nevi’im & the five megilos). Some sofrei STAM also write kesubos (or ketubot), but there is nothing inherently sacred about a kesuba. A traditional kesuba is a Jewish marriage contract which specifies the obligations of a husband to his wife, and the details of a monetary payment to be made by him (or his estate) to her in the event of divorce or his death.
