Mezuzah

  • Need a Mezuza?

  • A mezuzah place on the doorpost designates a Jewish home and reminds us of our connection to G-d and to our tradition. The mezuzah is also a symbol of G-d’s watchful care over our home.

    A mezuzah is not, contrary to popular belief, the outer container, but rather the scroll contained inside the case.  While you may have received as gifts beautiful mezuzah cases, the mitzvah concerns what goes inside the case.

    A sofer or scribe write the Shema on the parchment which must be accurate and kosher.  The placing of a mezuzah on the doors of a home or office protects the inhabitants – whether they are inside or outside.

    Mezuzah is one of the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s "BIG TEN" Mitzvot and is one of the most popular mitzvah for Jews of all backgrounds and affiliations.
