Breaking of the Glass Ceremony

The Jewish Glass Breaking Ceremony is an important part of the Jewish wedding and rich in symbolism. Although typically performed in the Temple, the ceremony can be held almost anywhere I have even performed it on the beach.

The groom breaks the glass with his right foot at the conclusion of the Jewish wedding ceremony. It reminds us of the destruction of the Holy Temple.The breaking of glass also is a warning of the frailty of a marriage. That sometimes a single thoughtless act, breech of trust, or infidelity can damage a marriage in ways that are very difficult to undo – just as it would be so difficult to undo the breaking of this glass. Knowing that this marriage is permanent, the bride and groom should strive to show each other the love and respect befitting their spouse and love of their life.

Once the glass is broken, the guests rejoice, ‘Mazel Tov!’ The shards of glass can be saved and placed in a piece of art and displayed in the bride and groom’s home. The shards of glass can be saved in a keepsake pouch as a memento. View available breaking of glass styles to purchase from a an online Judaica shop now offered from the Jewish Wedding Rabbi.

"Christina was great to work with. Planning a Florida beach wedding from Indiana would have been very difficult for us. Christina put everything together including the location, the officiant and the photographer as well as offering great ideas and additions to our ceremony. Every email was answered right away and each change was accommodated. Our ceremony was EXACTLY what we wanted. I highly recommend Weddings By Christina!"   ~   Read More »
