Next time you are in the Sanctuary at KI, take a look at the Hosea Window.   It is on your left, second from the front.   The verse quoted in the window (Hosea 2:19) comes from this week’s Haftarah (Parshat BaMidbar/Numbers).  “I will betroth you to me forever, “the prophet says to his bride, “I will betroth you in righteousness, and in justice, and in lovingkindness and mercy.”  It is a beautiful verse.  Sometimes, it is even used as a substitute for the “I Do” vow in a wedding service.
