A New Take on Breaking the Glass at a Jewish Wedding

Elizheva has officiated at five weddings as a lay person. At one Jewish wedding, she and the couple examined the ritual of breaking the glass. Rather than simply breaking it, they used it as a moment to talk about brokenness and the Kabbalistic notion of a shattered vessel that exploded and created the universe.


As part of Ritualwell’s partnership with BimBam (formerly G-dcast), we present a series of videos that share personal stories about Jewish lifecycle events. 

BimBam (formerly G-dcast) is a new media studio making Jewish videos, apps and animated series that are joyful, empowering introductions to Jewish ideas and life for kids & adults.. To learn more about BimBam (formerly G-dcast), visit http://www.bimbam.com

The Lifecycles Project was made possible with generous support from The Koret Foundation, as part of their Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood.
