This Mezuzah Case is truly like a miniature artwork, the intricate design is hand painted and set within a stainless steel frame. Austrian crystals, beads and a variety of other materials are delicately assembled and set in artists' resin resulting in a beautifully finished and durable piece. Truly a work of art, this Mezuzah Case is exceptionally well made and is produced in limited editions. The Mezuzah is a ceremonial object. The mitzvah or commandment of placing a Mezuzah is derived from Deuteronomy 6:4-9: "inscribe them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates". A Mezuzah is mounted on every doorway in a Jewish home. Our Mezuzah cases can also be mounted outdoors, preferably under an overhang.
