STERLING WEDDING GLASS MEZUZAH
Jewish weddings always include breaking a glass at the end of the ceremony. Traditionally, the man alone broke the glass though today, some couples break two glasses. The glass-breaking is typically followed by a communal "Mazel tov!", which is the equivalent of "Congratulations!"
It reminds us that love, like glass, is fragile and must be protected. The glass is broken to protect the marriage with an implied prayer: "May your marriage last as long as it would take to repair this glass." The shattering of the glass concludes the ceremony on a high note.
THE MEZUZAH IS A CLEAR TUBE WITH STERLING TOP AND BOTTOM CLOSURES DESIGNED TO REPRESENT THE KOTEL / THE WAILING WALL. THE RING AROUND THE LOWER PART OF THE MEZUZAH SPINS AND REPRESENTS THE WEDDING BAND WITH THE INSCRIPTION "ANI L'DODI V' DODI LI" I AM MY BELOVED'S AND MY BELOVED IS MINE.
DO -IT-YOURSELF IN A FEW MINUTES. YOUR MEZUZAH WILL ARRIVE WITH THE KOSHER SCROLL ALREADY IN PLACE. AFTER YOU BREAK THE GLASS, REMOVE THE BOTTOM CAP OF THE MEZUZAH, PLACE SOME OF THE SMALLER SHARDS OF GLASS INSIDE THE TUBE, AND REPLACE THE BOTTOM OF THE MEZUZAH ON THE TUBE.
THE MEZUZAH MEASURES 6" X 1/2"w
NAILS FOR AFFIXING TO THE WALL ARE INCLUDED. BROKEN GLASS NOT INCLUDED.
