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. OUR WEDDING GLASS MEZUZAH KIT INCLUDES A GLASS TO STEP ON IN COBALT BLUE, THE MEZUZAH AND A KOSHER SCROLL. THE MEZUZAH IS STERLING WITH THE WEDDING BAND "ANI L'DODI V'DODI LI" (I AM MY BELOVED'S AND MY BELOVED IS MINE) THAT SPINS AROUND. THE CAPS OF THE MEZUZAH ARE MADE TO REPRESENT THE WALL IN THE OLD CITY. DO -IT-YOURSELF IN A FEW MINUTES. 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. NAILS FOR AFFIXING TO THE WALL ARE INCLUDED. TOASTING GLASSES ARE A BONUS FOR THE BRIDE AND GROOM'S FIRST DRINK AS A MARRIED COUPLE.
