Does your home have a Kosher Mezuzah?
Get your own divine security system.

A mezuzah is a parchment scroll, on which the Shema is handwritten by an expert scribe. The mezuzah is mounted on the right side of the doorpost and designates the home as Jewish, reminding us of G‑d and our heritage. It is also a symbol of G‑d's watchful care over the home. The placing of a mezuzah on the doors of a home or office protects the inhabitants — whether they are inside or outside.

When does a mezuzah need to be checked, and why?

Mezuzahs should be checked by a Sofer (certified scribe) twice every seven years to see if they have been affected by adverse weather conditions, or by folding (which can cause cracks in the letters), or if any other defect has occurred. It is preferable to check mezuzahs which are on the outside of a building more often, due to their vulnerability to inclement weather.
