These door mezuzah are a contemporary interpretation of a traditional Jewish scroll casing. Each design incorporates the letter Shin which is part of God's name. The scroll inside provides a blessing for the home and it's occupants. In Deuteronomy, God commands the verse be affixed to the door post.
Mezuzot can go on any and all doorways except kitchen, bathroom and store room and should be placed on the right side of the door jamb, either vertically or with the top tilted toward the inside of the house.
The whimsical mezuzah both continues and reinterprets the tradition, bringing into your home a blessing that protected the ancestors, and can be passed onto your children.
Made in pewter, they make wonderful housewarming gifts or blessings for the home. Generally measure about 4.5 inches x 1 inch.
