A Special Mitzvah
Did you know? The Mezuzah brings G‑d’s protection upon all the members of the household, even when they are outside the home. And these are certainly times when we would like to increase G‑d’s protection.

The Mezuzah, contrary to popular belief, is not the outer container that is bolted to the doorpost. Instead, the Mezuzah is a parchment scroll inside the container, on which the Shema Yisrael, a biblical passage declaring the oneness of God, is handwritten by an expert scribe.

Free Mezuzot for YOU
Thanks to our sponsor, you can receive up to two kosher mezuzah scrolls (handwritten by an expert scribe on parchment) to hang in your home. If there is already one on the front door, this gifted mezuzah can be placed on any other door or doorway in the home that does not yet have a mezuzah.

Please fill out the short form and we will call you to coordinate putting up your new mezuzot.

Already Have a Mezuzah?
If you’ve already got one on your front door, we encourage you to accept these gifted mezuzah that may be placed on any other door or doorway in the home that does not yet have a mezuzah. We will also help you purchase additional Mezuzot for the other doorways in your home and have your existing Mezuzot checked.

  • What is a Mezuzah? The mezuzah must be hand-written by a competent ritual scribe on specially prepared parchment with the specific types of quill and ink mandated by tradition. Read More
  • Kiss the Mezuzah? That's right, we acknowledge the Mezuzahs presence through kissing it as we enter and exit the doorway. Read More
  • Did you know? You should hang a mezuzah on just about every doorway that belongs to you, feel free to purchase more than one or ten. Read More

When does a mezuzah need to be checked, and why?    
Mezuzahs should be checked by a Sofer (certified scribe) twice every seven years to see if they have been affected by adverse weather conditions, or by folding (which can cause cracks in the letters), or if any other defect has occurred. It is preferable to check mezuzahs which are on the outside of a building more often, due to their vulnerability to inclement weather.

When's the last time you had them checked?
