I was able to recognize the word "Kislev" on the upper left side, which is likely the month of December. If this guess is correct, the ketuba may be for my grandparents Tsudik (Charlie) Schaffer and Esther Bessie (Baila) Novak (or Nowadworska). I would like to know whose ketuba this is, and what the Hebrew script says about the couple. The original ketuba is in very poor condition and looks like someone may have torn it in two.
