This week I had the opportunity and honor to make three Mezuza’s for a newlywed Jewish couple
A Mezuza is a small case that resided the newlywed couple’s doorpost and contains a piece of parchment inscribed with specified Hebrew verses from the Torah (Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and 11:13-21). In this case the decorative case is made from Myrtle and includes a small container cove on the front for a glass vial which will contain shards of glass from the wedding ceremony. The parchment scroll will reside in a small hole routed into the back of the Mezuza, which is covered by a door. The Mezuza also has the letter “Shin” burned into it which I accomplished freehand.
