Description

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:

Baruch atah, Adonai
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.

Please note that a Klaf, the parchment scroll that is housed in a Mezuzah, is not included in this purchase.
