Top 10 Beautiful Mezuzahs From Israel
A Mezuzah is a beautiful and special Jewish ritual object used to mark the doorposts of Jewish homes, with two purposes: to remind those entering and leaving of the Divine commandments and the relationship between God and the Jewish people, and to identify one's dwelling as a Jewish household.
Mezuzahs are comprised of two components: an outer mezuzah case - often beautifully decorated, in a range of possible materials and designs - with a klaf or parchment scroll inside. The mezuzah scroll text, written by a sofer or professional Jewish scribe, contains an excerpt from the Book of Deuteronomy that commands the Jews to hang these words on the doorposts of their homes.
We carry a large range of gorgeous mezuzah cases from Israel, sometimes with a scroll already included and other times with an option to add a scroll in the appropriate size at an additional cost, following either the Ashkenazi and Sephardi traditions. And to help you narrow down from the many choices, we've put together our Top 10 Mezuzahs below!
