A Mezuzah is a small container that many Jewish people use to carry special portions of Scripture. MEZUZAHS (actually, "MEZUZOT" in the plural) can be worn, nailed to a doorway, or placed in one's car. The original injunction to carry Scripture was given in Deut.6:9, when the children of Israel were told to "Write these commandments upon the doorposts of your house, and on your gates." Our Mezuzahs all come with a copy of Deut.6:4-9 on a scroll to place inside the Mezuzah, in literal fulfullment of this commandment. Each quality case comes with an explanation of the Mezuzah, and a lovely printed scroll of Scripture (not hand-made). Or you may also place a Scripture of you choice in your Mezuzah. Some of the Mezuzahs sold here are specificly designed to be mounted on a doorframe. Most homes and shops in Israel have one.
