Groom’s Important Step!
Groom’s step on the glass and everyone shouts “Mazel Tov!” The Breaking of the Glass for under the wedding canopy with Jewish customs.
The breaking of the glass occurs at the very end of the Jewish Wedding Ceremony when the groom breaks it with his right foot.
Breaking Glass offers two meanings…It reminds us of the destruction of the Holy Temple; the breaking of the 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 the glass.
