What is a mezuzah?

The Hebrew word mezuzah means “doorpost.” According to tradition, the mezuzah is to be affixed to the doorpost at the
entrance to a Jewish home as well as at the entrance to each of the interior rooms except for bathrooms. The mezuzah
itself consists of a small scroll of parchment (k’laf ) on which are written two biblical passages.  The first is Deuteronomy
6:4–9:


Why do Jews affix a mezuzah to the doorpost of a home?

The custom of affixing a mezuzah to the doorpost fulfills the biblical commandment: “You shall write them upon the
doorposts of thy house and upon thy gates” (Deuteronomy 6:9). The mezuzah distinguishes a Jewish home and is a
visible sign and symbol to all those who enter that a sense of Jewish identity and commitment exists in that household.  
The mezuzah reminds us that our homes are holy places and that we should act accordingly—when we enter them and
when we leave them to go out into the world.
