Description

The mezuzah is a parchment scroll made from the skin of a “kosher” animal, placed in a special case (called “Mezuzah Case”), attached to a doorpost of a Jewish house. Two passages from the Torah (Deuteronomy 6: 4–9 and 11:13) are inscribed on the scroll, which are part of the Shema Israel (“Hear o Israel”) prayer, in which the commandment to put Mezuzah is mentioned. There are three letters written from the outside of the scroll – shin, dalet, yood – these are the first letters of one of the names of the God in Torah, translated to English as Almighty; and also interpreted as an abbreviation of the words: Guarding the Doors of Israel.

Mezuzah case, where the actual Mezuzah scroll is inserted, should be attached to the top-third of the right stand of the doorpost when viewed from the outside. There is a custom in Ashkenazi and Moroccan communities to hang the Mezuzah slightly inclined towards the room. All Jewish houses all over the world have mezuzahs attached to their doorposts, not only on the main entrance but also on the inner doors, except for bathrooms and toilets.

Mezuzah is NOT a magic amulet. It is prohibited in Judaism to believe in the magic protective properties of amulets and any use of them is also strictly prohibited. By attaching Mezuzahs to their doorposts Jews simply fulfill the commandment of the mezuzah prescribed in the Torah (Deuteronomy 6: 4–9 and 11:13). One of the most prominent Jewish scholars, Rambam explains (Laws of Tefillin 6:13): “The commandment to have a mezuzah on our doorposts reminds at each of our arrivals or leaving the house about the unity of the Most High and our due love for Him”.
