What is the dimension of the mezuzah cases?
4 5/8” x 7/8″
What’s included with my purchase?
Every mezuzah case comes with a length of double-sided tape for easy affixing
What size Klaf do your mezuzahs accommodate? What size klaf do you sell?
The Design a Mezuzah case accommodates a 4″ (10 cm) klaf.
The size available on the site is 4″ (10 cm).
Other size klafim are available upon request.
Are the Klafim that you sell kosher?
The Sephardic and Ashkenazic klafim have been imported from Israel where they are written by trained soferim/scribes and have been re-checked by an Orthodox sofer/scribe in the United States. They are considered to be of exceptional quality.
Can I print out the scroll myself?
No. In order for the mezuzah to be kosher it needs to be written by a Sofer (a scribe) on a kosher parchment from hide.
Are the mezuzot cases pre-made?
The mezuzot are assembled by hand to order. If you order a klaf, we can seal it inside for you.
How do I put up the mezuzah?
Place the Klaf/parchment inside the case re-rolling it tighter if necessary. The lettering on the outside of the klaf should face out (facing the letter ש on the outside of the case.)
Peel back the paper on one side of the double-sided-tape and apply to the open side of the mezuzah case, covering the klaf. Make sure to carefully align the the tape with the edges of the case before you stick it down.
Peel the paper from the other side of the tape. Put the mezuzah in place on the top third of your doorpost at an angle with the bottom corner pointing away from the room and press for 30-60 seconds. (For a child’s room, you may opt to place the mezuzah lower down on the doorpost so that a child can reach it.)
If putting up mezuzot for the first time in this dwelling, make the bracha (before affixing the first one):
בָּרוּך אַתָּה אַדָנָ-י אֶלוֹהֵ-ינוּ מֶלֶך הָעוֹלָם אַשֶר קְדִשָנוּ בְּמִצְווֹתָיו וְצִיווָנוּ לִקְבּוֹעַ מְזוּזָה
Baruch Atah A-do-nai Elo-heinu Melech haolam asher kideshanu bemitzvotav vetzivanu likboa mezuzah.
Where do I place the Mezuzah on the door?
The mezuzuh goes on the right side as you enter the room on the bottom of the top third of the door post.
(For a child’s room, you may opt to place the mezuzah slightly lower down on the doorpost so that a child can reach it.)
The Mezuzah should tilt to the left.
Where does the idea of the mezuzah come from?
The tradition of hanging a mezuzah on the door frame of the house goes all the way back to the biblical book of Deuteronomy in which it is stated “and you shall scribe them on the doorpost of your house and on your gates.”
The mezuzah is meant to call to mind the covenant between God and the Jewish people. It is also a reminder of the sacred Jewish space that we create in our own home and also defines our home to others as one devoted to Jewish culture, beliefs and traditions.
