7/21/2013 8:30 PM This is a ketubah--a Jewish marriage document. The language is actually Aramaic, not Hebrew. The text is the same for all of them, so I'll just extract the information that's different:

Marriage was Tuesday 19th of Adar 5680 in Skvesha. Groom: Moshe Dov son of Yehudah. Bride: Rivka daughter of Zev (her first marriage)

Witnesses (witnesses aren't supposed to be related to the bride or groom): Yisrael son of Shich?; Yitzchok son of Shmuel Zavil
7/22/2013 10:11 AM just one small additional comment: the text of the traditional ketubah is prescribed by rabbinic law, and is therefore very standard. you can find the hebrew text and english translation online in many places. (particularly businesses that sell decorative ketubot.)
