On their wedding day, Jewish grooms take a moment amid the joy and celebration to break a glass in commemoration of the two Jewish Temples that were destroyed.

You wouldn’t know it based on today’s media, but the Temple Mount is the most important place in the entire world for the Jewish people.

The Temple is so important that at every Jewish wedding, the happiness is temporarily suspended as the groom breaks a glass in commemoration of the destruction of the Temples.

This moving video captures the intense moment perfectly and gives you a sense of what the Jews are mourning on Tisha b’Av.
