"Shraga Landesman’s Judaica work often can be said to tell a story. This mezuzah case bears witness to the legendary tale, straight out of the Five Books of Moses, of Balak and Balaam, with the Hebrew words “how lovely are your tents, oh Jacob! Your dwelling place, oh Israel!
Balak was an ancient king who became afraid of the advancing Israelite army. To defend his people, he summoned forth Balaam, a great priest and sorcerer. Balak commanded Balaam to curse the Israelites. He tried time and again to issue the curse, but G-d never let him utter the words. The Torah tells what happened next:
The last time Balaam took a full view of Israel's camp, he exclaimed ""How goodly are thy tents, 0 Jacob, thy dwellings, 0 Israel! As valleys stretch out, as gardens by the river-side; as aloes planted of the L-rd, as cedars beside the waters...Blessed be every one that blesseth thee, and cursed be every one that curseth thee”
