Wedding Glass

What did you do with the glass that was broken under the Chuppah? Ours is still in a plain box waiting to have something done with it. You?

    We carry several Mezuzahs from the Gary Rosenthal Collection that you can insert the broken shards:

    Wow, I never even thought about it. I assume the staff at the hotel swept it up and put it in the trash.

    Why would I keep broken glass???

    We put it ours in this mezuzah:–Ani-L'Dodi-Large-_rcwm1.html

    I love it. Now that we are moving though, I just found the box with the rest of the glass. (Of course I’m shlepping it along even though I don’t know what we will do with it!)

    We had ours mounted in a lucite block (sort of floating inside), with our names and the date.

    Ours was turned Into a mezuzah too. My aunt bought us the glass that was made specifically for the mezuzah

    we have ours in a plastic bag wrapped in some sort of fabric. my hubby didn’t want to throw it out last time we did our cleaning. we will probably never do anything with it. :(

    It was tossed in the gabage.

    Evan’s aunt bought us a glass that was sent away and sent to us in the form of a mezuzah. I can’t wait to hang it up tonight :D It’s BEAUTIFUL.

      Nice idea to make a mezuzah out of it, makes me sorry we didn’t save ours twenty five years ago…

    Thanks for posting this, Dass….I really want to do something with ours. Chavi, would you mind posting a pic of yours? :)

    At our wedding, one of my husband’s relatives swooped in right after the glass was broken and took the napkin with the glass shards. A few weeks later we received in the mail a lucite box engraved with our wedding date with the base of the glass attached to the bottom and the shards loose in the box. We laughed to think of the mail handlers who must have heard the broken glass sounds and thought that the object inside the box was broken in transit!

    I like the idea of putting the shards in a mezzuzah so I was thinking of buying one as a wedding gift for the best man at our wedding who is finally, 23 years after us, getting married. However, I’m glad that I thought to ask our friend what he thought of such a mezzuzah since he is fairly non-observant. I told him that a sales woman at our nearby Judaica store said that couples typically put that type of mezzuzah on their bedroom door. Our friend said that he only has a mezzuzah on his front door and is not interested in another one. His fiance is not even Jewish*, but he had mentioned that they still plan to have the breaking of the glass at their wedding. (* As non-religious as he is, he went to Kabbalat Shabbat services just for singles and really did look for a Jewish woman to marry. At this point, we’re just glad he does not have to be unwillingly single for life.)

    Another one for the absolutely beautiful “Shardz” mezuzah on our bedroom door. We knew we wanted to do something Shardz and an older cousin told me to pick a color and they would do the rest. It was a very awesome gift.
    My best friend has a Chanukiah with her glass parts in the middle and a friend of theirs has a kiddush cup. It is really cool to be able to see these things on a regular basis and have that memory…
