Mezuzah

Mezuzah

Shema scrolls are affixed to the door posts of every Jewish home these scrolls are called Mezuzah. The Mezuzah symbolizes the sanctity of the Jewish home and the affixing of a Mezuzah in a new‚ or existing‚ home is considered a special Mitzvah. The Mezuzah contains the two Biblical passages in Deuteronomy 6:4-9 4 which mention this important commandment. Hear‚ O Israel: The LORD our G-d‚ the LORD is one. 5 Love the LORD your G-d with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your ... And write them upon the doorposts of your house and upon your gates The parchment‚ Klaff‚ with the hand written Shema is very delicate. To protect it we use a Mezuzah case also called Mezuzah covers. Thus artists designed special Mezuzah cases for the scroll that is kept in a Beit Mezuzah‚ Mezuzah case‚ or Mezuzah cover. For the mitzvah of Hidur Mizvah‚ the concept of beautifying the Judaic commandments‚ those Mezuzah cases become real work of Judaic art. The housings for the Mezuzah scroll come in many shapes and are made of different materials. The letter Shin that you can see on almost all Mezuzot‚ signify the name of G-d. Sometimes you'll find the Hebrew letters Shin Daled Yod that is the abbreviation of Shomer Dlatot Yisrael or in English‚ the Keeper of the Doors of Israel. Mezuzah cases come in many decorative styles and materials: glass mezuzah cases‚ metal‚ ceramic and wood mezuzah cases with an almost unending design possibilities and color combination.
