We have continued our learning about Judaism by finding out about the mezuzah. The word, which literally means ‘doorpost’, is used to refer to a small scroll of parchment, upon which is written two biblical passages from the Book of Deuteronomy.
These passages remind Jewish people of their obligations to G-d and reminds them of the way in which they should live their lives.
The mezuzah scroll is then placed in a decorative case and affixed to the doorway of a Jewish home. Some people may choose to have one on every doorway int their house (apart from the bathroom).
We wrote own own interpretations of a mezuzah, by thinking of things that are important to us, why they are important and what they remind us of.
