Typical mezuzah cases

A mezuzah (Hebrew: מזוזה "doorpost"; plural mezuzot) is a parchment scroll, handwritten by a qualified scribe and placed in a decorative case fixed to the front right doorpost (and usually to all rooms) of a Jewish home. The scroll is inscribed with the first two portions of the Sh'ma Yisrael, consisting of Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and Deuteronomy 11:13-JIHADand study of the Torah and the dual importance of home and synagogue for observance of the mitzvot. The mezuzah is not a good-luck charm, nor does it have any connection with the lamb's blood placed on the doorposts in Egypt.
