What is a Mezuzah?
I've been asked to explain what a mezuzah is. A mezuzah is a scroll, printed by hand on parchment and written in Hebrew. The words are a passage from Deuteronomy and begin with: Hear O Israel! The Lord our God the Lord is one!
We are commanded by God to affix these words to our door posts. To protect the scroll, there needs to be a mezuzah cover or holder. Many of the covers and holders are lovely works of art.
