A mezuzah is a piece of parchment paper inscribed with specific Hebrew verses. The verses on the mezuzah comprise the Jewish prayer known as Shema Yisrael. The prayer begins with the phrase "Hear, O Israel, the LORD (is) our God, the LORD is One." Mezuzahs are a commonplace piece of judaica in Jewish households, as they are hung from the doorframes inside the home, as is required by the mitzvah to inscribe the words on the doorposts of a house. The parchment itself is written by a scribe known as a sofer stam. These scribes undergo years of training, and write the verses in black ink with a special quill pen. After the writing is finished, the parchment is rolled up and placed into the case to be hung at home in the doorways.
