Wherever you go in the world, Jewish homes are distinguished by the little boxes outside the door containing a mezuzah scroll. The mezuzah declares the Oneness of God – the Shemah – and is supposed to protect your home. By attaching a mezuzah to your front door you’re essentially attaching yourself to thousands of years of Jewish tradition.

Instructions:


  1. Buy a kosher mezuzah and attach it to your front door.

  2. If you feel comfortable, you can even recite the blessing, which can be found at the bottom of this link here.

  3. Take a picture of yourself attaching it and post it to the site.
