I recently purchased an art print titled "Kol Sason." I am curious. What is the meaning of these words?

In Hebrew, "kol sason" means "sounds of joy." These words are part of Jeremiah's prophecy,1 wherein G‑d warns the Jews that He "will banish from the cities of Judah and from the streets of Jerusalem the sound of joy and the sound of happiness, the sound of a groom and the sound of a bride, for the land shall be desolate."

This verse is rephrased in the joyful Sheva Brachot (Seven Benedictions) blessings that are recited beneath the wedding canopy (as well as during the festive week that follows a Jewish wedding): "Let there speedily be heard in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem the sound of joy ("kol sason") and the sound of happiness, the sound of a groom and the sound of a bride..."

May we speedily see the actualization of this prayer!
