I would like translations of the hand-written text that clarifies whose marriage this ketuba was for and any other information about the participants.

2/6/2013 8:18 PM Hello Robin,

The general information is:

In New York, during the Hebrew month of Sivan, the groom Yosef Ben/(son of) Shmuel(??) married the bride Sora Fruma Bas/(daughter of) Mordechai Leib.

Witness: Shlomo Ben/(son of) Reb Meir(??) Goldstine.
Witness: Tzvi ??? ????

Since the writing is not easy to decipher, where there are question marks after the name, it means that it is an educated guess only. Where there are question marks for the name, it was not legible...Jo
2/6/2013 10:33 PM This is indeed a Ketuba.

On the evening before Sunday, the 22nd of the month of Sivan, 5688 (10 June 1928)

Yosef son of Shimon

Sara Frima daughter of Mordekhai Leib

Witnesses:
Shlomo son of (Meir?) Goldstein
Tsvi son of Zeev Kleiner
2/7/2013 12:42 AM I think that brides name is Sara Feiga

I agree. Sara Feige (Feiga) not Frima
