The Grafted In Symbol is one of the earliest known Christian symbols. This combined Menorah, Star of David, and Fish, represent the unity and common roots of Judaism and Christianity. It was first discovered in a small assembly room on Mount Zion; 3 rd Century A.D. In Romans, Paul speaks about the natural olive tree of Israel and the grafting in of gentile believers into the olive tree.
The Mezuzah is a symbol that can be seen on the right-hand doorpost in every Jewish household. It acknowledges G-d's sovereignty over the home. Within is a hand-inscribed parchment bearing the words of Deuteronomy 6: "Hear O Israel: The Lord our G-d is one Lord...And thou shalt write them (the words of G-d) upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates."
Having a mezuzah on the doorpost, touching it and then touching the lips, reminds us to keep the word of G-d on our lips as we enter and leave our home.
