Mezuzah

WHAT IS A MEZUZAH?

INK + PARCHMENT 

Mezuzah, literally translated as doorpost, is a small parchment scroll affixed on the doorposts of Jewish homes and businesses. It contains the Hebrew words of the Shema, expertly handwritten by a scribe with ink and quill.

The Mezuzah symbolizes G-d’s protection and presence in one’s life. A small scroll with the words of the Shema inscribed, it is placed on the doorframe of one’s home, framing its inhabitants with a deeper awareness and appreciation for the Divine.
