"You shall write them upon the doorposts of your home and your gates"

Deutoronomy 6: 4-9 / 11: 13-21 

 

What is a Mezuzah? 

A mezuzah mounted on the doorpost designates the home as Jewish, reminding us of our connection to G‑d and to our heritage. 

A mezuzah is not, contrary to popular belief, the outer container. The mezuzah is actually the parchment scroll within, on which the "Shema" — a biblical passage declaring the oneness of G‑d — is handwritten by an expert scribe.
