Instead of writing the name of the kallah (bride) Rivka bat Chaim (for example) it was written Rivka ben Chaim. In such a case what's the halacha? By a kasubah is it valid? Does it have to be written again? What about in the case of a get is it kosher? Should another get be written and given?

  • "Kosher" is probably the wrong technical term; a Kesuba is a legal document that is either valid or invalid. – Danny Schoemann Feb 18 '14 at 12:59
  • @DannySchoemann Why can't kosher mean valid? – Double AA Feb 18 '14 at 19:41
  • Kosher can mean anything you want it to mean - but it usually means that it's "halachicly valid". If a Get is not Kosher then the couple is not divorced. It's not Kosher if it's not written with all the complicated rules of Gittin. A Kesuba has no Halachic ramifications; best to show it to a lawyer... – Danny Schoemann Feb 19 '14 at 9:09
