Bride and Groom, this glass symbolizes the clarity of your love for each other and the shattering of your old separate lives as you begin your life together as a married couple.
As you break the glass, all of our blessings will be bestowed upon you.
Ladies and Gentlemen, it is the tradition for everyone present to shout Mazel Tov! - the Hebrew word for congratulations - as the groom stomps the wedding goblet.
The sound of the glass breaking is also a signal saying, “Let the party begin!”
