 What is a Mezuzah?  

 A Mezuzah is a Parchment scroll that has been written by a professional scribe, usually in Israel. It contains two portions 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 Lord Our God, the Lord is One." It is traditionally attached to the doorposts of a Jewish home or in your case dorm room. Maimonides writes that the Mezuzah reminds us of the presence and the Unity of G-d, arousing us to remember and love G-d and follow His path. A ‘kosher’ Mezuzah also brings protection and blessing - whether you are home or away. The free case provided in this offer, is made of white or clear plastic. Or, you may provide your own case!
