Small Painted Wood Mezuzah Case Birds Over Jerusalem
A whimsical, artsy wooden mezuzah, showing multi-level scenes from the Holy Land of Israel with traditional imagery. A white dove flies over the Old City of Jerusalem, which is depicted in bright hues of blue, green, yellow, red, and violet. Designed by renowned Israeli Judaica artist Yair Emanuel, this mezuzah is an artistic addition to any Jewish house.
This is a beautiful, brightly colored wooden mezuzah, featuring the stunning artwork of the Israeli Judaica designer Yair Emanuel in hues of blue, green, yellow, red, pink, and purple. Small and compact, this mezuzah is equally eye-catching and functional – it fits perfectly in any doorway. The mezuzah case is decorated with images of the Holy Land, from a “bird’s eye view,” as a dainty white dove flies over the vibrant, multi-leveled streets and houses of the Old City, Jerusalem. A beautiful addition to your Jewish home, temple, or synagogue, this mezuzah can be mounted to any doorpost.
The mezuzah – a small, ornate box that Jewish people hang in the doorways of their homes – serves to remind passersby of the mitzvoth (commandments) and G-d’s presence. Today, mezuzot (the plural form in Hebrew) are generally made from plastic, glass, enamel, metal, plastic, or wood – like this one. They are designed to house a small scroll, made of parchment, in which the holy verses of the Shema prayer are written in Hebrew calligraphy by a meticulously trained Jewish scribe, called a sofer.
