An appealing piece of Judaica both in texture and in look, this delightful Mezuzah is injected with actual Israeli sand for a wonderfully sandy gritty texture. This feels unique on the finger when you reach up to give it a kiss, and also gives it an amazing visual effect that catches the eye and sparks interest. These qualities are wonderful in a mezuza, whose purpose is to serve as a reminder as you pass through each door of your Judaism and your connection with G-d. The Metal letter Shin on the top stands for one of G-d's names, Shadai. Inside the case, you put a scroll inscribed with the Shema, and attach it to the side of the doorways of your home, so that as you pass through many times a day, you can give it a touch or a kiss and be reminded of your Jewish heritage.
