  • Welcome to Mi Yodeya, rishon. I'd like to second @sam's question: why would a ktuba with vowels be invalid? Please consider editing in your motivation for the question, and reasoning behind it. Thanks! Hope you enjoy Mi Yodeya, and if you're looking for more stuff to read, why not start with our other ~35 ketubah questions. – Scimonster Jun 15 '15 at 19:30

When the Cairo Genizah were discovered, there were many kethuboth found, and some of them were vowelized when a word had an odd spelling, and certain letters would have a line above or below them to signify hard or soft letters for pronunciation guides.


this question was posed to The Institute for Dayanim and they wrote back saying that it's okay for a Kesubah to be voweled.
