What is a Mezuzah?
The Mezuzah is one of the most common traditional Jewish ritual articles. It is commonly used in many Jewish households, whether religious or secular and is considered a source of protection and a blessing. The Mezuzah is set in the doorway in the entrance of the house and in some homes also in the other living rooms. The Mezuzah holder contains a scroll with two carefully hand- written sections of the Chumash. On the back of the Mezuzah appears the initials of G-D name that also means the “keeping of Israel doors”. This adds to the importance of purchasing a Mezuzah from Israel for your new home.
Considerations in selecting a Mezuzahs from Israel
One consideration is usually the design. Today you can find many different designs made of different materials, in different sizes and colors, and all kinds of engravings and decorations. Because the Mezuzah shouldn’t be moved once it is set, besides matters of taste and prestige, one should consider the durability of materials chosen since the Mezuzah is exposed to outdoor climate.
Another consideration is Kashrut – regardless of the design, the scroll must be meticulously written in a certain way by a certified master scribe. Furthermore, buying a Mezuzah from Israel adds to its grace.
