What is a Mezuzah?
A Mezuzah is a Parchment scroll that has been written by a professional scribe, usually in Israel. It contains two portions of the Torah that discuss the Jewish Faith. Every Mezuzah, no matter how simple or elaborate the exterior casing may be, contains the exact same inscription, the Shema Yisrael: "Hear o' Israel, the Lord Our God, the Lord is One." It is traditionally attached to the doorposts of a Jewish home. Maimonides writes that the Mezuzah reminds us of the presence and the Unity of G-d, arousing us to remember and love G-d and follow His path. A ‘kosher’ Mezuzah also brings protection and blessing - whether you are home or away.
The free case provided in this offer, is made of white or clear plastic. Or, you may provide your own case!
(What if I want to buy a Mezuzah?)
That’s great! We will be happy to sell you a Mezuzah, or we can direct you to a store that has a broad selection of Mezuzahs and cases.
How do I get one?
Contact us to sign up. Once signed up, we will want a $30 dollar deposit from you. This deposit will be refunded when you return the Mezuzah at the end of the year. There is a limited supply – please act soon.
The fine print.
While a Mezuzah is important for every Jewish home, this offer is currently being made to Jewish students at the University of Chicago only. Once hung, the Mezuzah is your personal responsibility. Please make sure nothing happens to it. (However, if something does, please tell us immediately.)
