That Time Ginnifer Goodwin Got Her Ketubah Stolen

‘Oh Honey, remember that time our ketubah was stolen from our wedding planner’s car on the morning of the ceremony?’

That’s an anecdote that Ginnifer Goodwin, the cheerful star from “Once Upon a Time,” will probably be sharing with husband and co-star Josh Dallas for many Shabbat dinners to come.

The actress shared the whole story on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”, including the happy ending in which two well-meaning Jewish strangers found the ketubah on the street, realized what it was and returned it, allowing Goodwin’s childhood rabbi to get on with the ceremony. ’ Kimmel’s reaction says it all: “Who would steal this?”
