Description:

“And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”  Deuteronomy 6:19

This highly stylized Mezuzah, painted against a restless sunset sky, containing two Torah passages which mention the Divine commandments, attests to God’s watchful care over the house, while reminding dwellers and visitors that “this house is a Sanctuary of the Almighty.”

The Mezuzah, as it is recorded in the Torah, has its origin in the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt.  The dabbing of blood from the sacrificed lamb on to the doorframe of the house became a tradition to protect the Jewish home from harm.  This custom became a religious tradition over 3,500 years ago and identifies a Jewish home to this day, wherever Jews live all over the world.
