Description of Mezuzah: Wood by Holy Land Gifts
With Semi-Precious Stones, "Shin," 5" high.
The mezuzah has always been both a device for remembrance by the Jewish people and a means of identifying the Jewish dwelling as a place where God is honored and revered. The mezuzah is affixed on the doorpost on the right side of the door at about eye-level (about one third of the way down from the top of the door). It is always inclined slightly inwardly (because even Gods Word bows before the Creator). In order to increase the mnemonic value of the mezuzah, one is placed on the entrance of every door in a house (except those for closets and bathrooms).
Parchments for Mezuzahs Our parchment contains the correct scriptures from the Torah and was originally written by hand by a Rabbi. It was then copied by machine for use in our mezuzahs. Individual hand written parchments would be cost-prohibitive for our type of mezuzahs. In Judaism, the name of G-d is not written or spoken. On our parchments, the space for the name of G-d is blacked out rather than being written.
