What is a Mezuzah?
A Mezuzah is a parchment scroll that has been handwritten by a professional scribe. It contains two sections of the Torah that discuss the Jewish faith. Every Mezuzah, no matter how simple or elaborate the exterior casing may be, contains the exact same inscription, the Shema Yisrael: "Hear o' Israel, the L-rd Our Gā€‘d, the L-rd is One."

It is traditionally attached to the doorposts of a Jewish home. A 'kosher' Mezuzah can also bring protection and blessing - whether you are home or away.

How do I get one?
Call Rabbi Hershy at 347-581-7936 or email [email protected]. All you need is a $20 deposit. This deposit will be refunded when you return the Mezuzah at the end of the academic year. You can put it up yourself or Rabbi Hershy will be happy to help you hang it properly with the appropriate blessing.
