Mezuzahs

A Mezuzah is a daily reminder — and a public declaration — of Jewish identity and faith.

Though Mezuzah literally means “doorpost,” it commonly refers to a scroll of parchment containing biblical verses, placed on the doorpost.

The scroll contains the first two paragraphs of the “Shema” prayer, declaring the oneness of God, and commanding us “to write [these words] on the doorpost of your house and on your gates” (Deut. 6:4-9).

The second passage (Deut. 11:13-21) teaches that Jewish destiny, both individually and nationally, depends upon fulfilling God’s will.

In Hebrew, the word for human dwelling is dirah, while the word for animal dwelling is dir. The difference between these two words is the letter hey — signifying the Name of God. The presence of God in one’s home is what distinguishes us as uniquely human.
