Sheva Brachot Trilingual Hebrew, English and Russian Transliteration
The seven blessings which draw divine blessings for the duration of the couple's married life commence with a blessing over a cup of wine.
While every person projects a certain persona, wine has the ability to reveal the person behind the façade, the hidden elements of the person's personality. After imbibing a drink of wine, people tend to reveal the personality which lurks beneath the surface — for better or for worse. What an appropriate metaphor for marriage, when two soulmates resolve to accept each other unconditionally; not only the persona projected by the other, but also the hidden and subconscious elements of their spouse.
