Breaking Glass

Breaking the Glass (שְׁבִירַת כּוֹס)

To conclude the wedding ceremony, it is a Jewish custom to break a glass, this is to remind us even in moments of great joy we should not be forgetful of the moments of destruction and sadness.

A loving relationship involves not only sharing the good and happy times, but also s haring the difficult and painful times. May your love for each other never fail…but grow deeper and stronger through all of life’s varied experiences.
