Breaking of the Glass Explained
One of the best known Jewish wedding customs is breaking a glass. Usually the groom breaks a wineglass under his heel at the end of the ceremony under the huppah. (In some egalitarian ceremonies, the couple breaks the glass together.) There are many ways to explain this custom that invest it with meaning for the couple and their community. Rabbi Jacques Cukierkorn gives a great one here to an interfaith couple at their wedding.
