Halacha - Kesuvah for a non-virgin
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: It is a universal minhag to read the kesuba under the chuppa, its omission would be an obvious and glaring indication to all present that something is unusual. However since we certainly don't want to publicly embarrass the kallah, the Poskim discuss two options. Some permit writing the kesuba as if she were a virgin as long as the chassan knows the truth. Others say that two kesubos should be prepared, a standard but not valid one to be read under the chuppa, and a second accurate one to be given privately. You should speak to your Rav and to the mesader kiddushin to make the necessary arrangements.

Halacha - ketuba
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

If it would not say that one is a "besula" in the kesuba it would be immediately noticed by many of the guests. The common solution to avoid embarrassment is to have 2 kesubos. A standard one which is read at the chuppa but is not legally valid, and a second accurate one which is given in private. Speak to the Rabbi officiating and he will make the necessary arrangements.

Halacha - Mikveh
Submitted by Goldie Block  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The specifics of an individual case would depend on the severity of the psoriasis, and the Rabbi conducting the conversion should be consulted. Generally speaking, loose flakes of skin should be soaked and removed, but dead skin that is full attached need not be removed.
