Mezuzah: (Lit. “doorpost”): A small parchment scroll upon which the Hebrew words of the Shema are handwritten by a scribe. Mezuzah scrolls are rolled up and affixed to the doorposts of Jewish homes, designating the home as Jewish . It also is reminding those who live there of their connection to G‑d and their heritage.The decorative case containing the mezuzah scroll is just that: a mere container. What’s important is the scroll, upon which the first two sections of the Shema are handwritten. It begins with the eternal words “Hear o Israel, the L‑rd is our G‑d, the L‑rd is One. These selections both contain G‑d’s instruction to affix the mezuzah: “You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”  The klaf is hand written on real animal skin parchment and the text is hand written by qualified scribe called Sofer stam .

Another inscription is

  • the Hebrew word שדי (Shaddai)
  • the phrase “כוזו במוכסז כוזו” which must be added to the scroll once the scribe has finished the full text perfectly.

The scribe has followed trainings and studies to fulfill the sages instructions how to write the holy parchment. The ink used is only black. Some Mezuza dealers might provide you the case with a photocopy of the klaf. Orthodox Jews do not accept it as Kosher.
