What is a Mezuzah?

A Mezuzah is a parchment scroll that has been hand-written by a professional scribe. It contains two sections 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 L-rd Our G‑d, the L-rd is One." It is traditionally attached to the doorposts of a Jewish home. A 'kosher' Mezuzah can also bring protection and blessing - whether you are home or away - to all the people of Israel.
