This artsy, modern mezuzah is a beautifully contemporary version of a traditional Judaica item. Made of textured glass, passersby will be able to see the special Shema parchment that is to be inserted into the case. The case is surrounded by a metal plate, embellished with artful, pomegranate inspired designs. There is a hole at the top and bottom of the mezuzah, which can be nailed to the doorposts of your Jewish home.
Mezuzot are small boxes, designed to carry a little, rolled parchment containing the verses of the Shema prayer, handwritten in Hebrew in an ancient calligraphic font by a trained Jewish scribe. In the modern age, mezuzos are commonly made out of glass, metal, enamel, wood, or plastic. Most mezuzahs are adorned with the Hebrew letter Shin, which does not refer to the Shema prayer kept inside, but one of the holy names of the Almighty. The mezuzah serves to remind people passing by of their special connection with G-d and the mitzvot He gave to us.
