Ceramic Mezuza cover made of Terracotta clay and glazed with a blue-green glaze that is playing with the raised surface of the clay. A rustic treasure, made by hand, in Israel, by a Jewish artist.
A Mezuza mounted on the doorpost remind us of our Jewish heritage. The costume believe is that by placing of a Mezuza on the doors of a home, one protects the inhabitants from all bad.
This ceramic Mezuza can be a beautiful addition to any Jewish door front.
This Mezuza cover is approximately 6 inches long and 2 inches wide.
The groove in the back where the Klaf is placed fits a 10 cm scroll.
This listing is for one Mezuza cover without the scroll that goes inside.
Use nails, screws or an industrial-strength glue or double-sided tape, with which to affix the Mezuza.
Blessing when hanging Mezuza
The Hebrew text:
בָּרוּך אַתָּה אַדָנָ-י אֶלוֹהֵ-ינוּ מֶלֶך הָעוֹלָם אַשֶר קְדִשָנוּ בְּמִצְווֹתָיו וְצִיווָנוּ לִקְבּוֹעַ מְזוּזָה
Here’s how it sounds:
Eloheinu, Melech haolam,
asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotav
v’tzivanu likboa m’zuzah.
Here’s what it means:
Blessed are you, G‑d our G‑d, King of the Universe, Who has made us holy with His commandments and commanded us to affix a Mezuza.
