Guaranteed to bring a pleasant pop of color to your doorways, this charming and artful purple edged mezuzah case, made of metal, comes adorned with floral cutout designs reminiscent of the Middle Easterm cyclamen blossoms. This materialistically beautiful Judaica mezuzah case is designed to contain a sacred parchment, the spiritually beautiful element of the mitzvah of mounting mezuzot in one’s house and synagogue.
The mitzvah of affixing a mezuzah to one’s doorposts originates in the Bible. In the Book of Devarim / Deuteronomy (6:9, 11:20), G-d commands the Jewish people to inscribe the words He presently dictates on the doorways of most rooms in one’s dwelling place. These hallowed words are also found in the “Shema” prayer, which commands that one must love God, believe only in Him, keep His commandments, and pass all of this on to one’s children.
