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
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
doorposts of thy house and upon thy gates” (Deuteronomy 6:9).
The mezuzah distinguishes a Jewish home and is a
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
when we leave them to go out into the world.
