What a man does (by stamping on it with his foot) after the blessings at a Jewish wedding, as a commemoration of the Temple in Jerusalem, which was destroyed in 68 or 70 of the Common Era.

"Wasn't it a beautiful wedding?"
"Yes, they're just perfect for each other."
"I know. When he broke the glass, I cried."
