* It is recommended to consider the size of the mezuzah when ordering the parchment.
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.
