Small Painted Wood Mezuzah Case Fiddler On The Roof
A distinct and symbolic small wooden mezuzah, with painted designs by Yair Emanuel, depicting a fiddler on the roof. An iconic symbol of balancing ancient traditions and modern sensibilities, the beautiful Fiddler on the Roof-inspired mezuzah is a wonderful way to add traditional flair to your home.
"A fiddler on the roof. Sounds crazy, no? ...In our little village of Anatevka, you might say every one of us is a fiddler on the roof, trying to scratch out a pleasant, simple tune without breaking his neck. It isn't easy. You may ask, why do we stay up here if it's so dangerous? … And how do we keep our balance? That I can tell you in a word – tradition!” Tevye, from the musical FIDDLER ON THE ROOF.
With stunning artwork and delightful colors, this painted wooden mezuzah by Yair Emanuel depicts the iconic image of a fiddler, balancing on the roof as he joyously plays his music, is an allegory to the devout Jewish person’s struggle to balance traditions of the past with life today. Installing a mezuzah in the doorposts of your home is one such way to keep tradition in the balance.
The mezuzah is a little rectangular Judaica item, made commonly from wood, glass, metal, enamel, and even plastic, that Jewish people hang in the doorposts of their houses and synagogues. The case is meant to contain a small, handwritten scroll of the Shema prayer. With all of its components, the mezuzah serves to remind every Jew of their connection with the Creator, and this one is a model example of how beautiful Judaica art can be, thanks to Yair Emanuel.
