Mezuzah Cases And Scrolls
Mezuzahs are made up of two parts: A handwritten mezuzah scroll and a decorative mezuzah case that protects the mezuzah scroll and adds a touch of personality to every doorpost in a Jewish Home.
The mezuzah contains the most important foundations and fundamental principles of our belief. It speaks about our belief in only One God, our love for God and his Torah, and the importance of keeping mitzvot. But if we are going to affix it to our doorpost, so it needs to look good. We get it! Our collection of mezuzah cases range from antique to Armenian to glass and include multiple colors and sizes. You’ll be hung up on these mezuzot, for sure!
A mezuzah should be affixed to the doorpost of each room in the home and place of business (including basement, attic, and garage). A mezuzah should never be placed at the entrance to a bathroom.

How To Hang A Mezuzah
The mezuzah is affixed:
- 1. On the right doorpost as one enters.
- 2. In a slanted position with top pointed to inside of room.
- 3. In the upper third of doorpost height (shoulder high).
- 4. On outer 3.2 inches of doorpost width.
Before affixing a mezuzah to a doorpost, the following blessing should be recited:
Hebrew Transliteration: Boruch Atah A-do-nai Elo-heinu Melech Ha-olam asher kidishanu b'miyzvotov v'tzivanu likboa mezuzah.
Translation: Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us to affix a mezuzah.
If more than one Mezuzah is being affixed at one time, only one blessing is recited. When affixing a mezuzah to an archway, no blessing is recited.
