This copper mezuzah with green patina leaves will decorate your doorpost with a bit of the outdoors. The bold and whimsical design by Gary Rosenthal makes a statement on any large door frame. Mezuzahs are traditionally affixed to doorposts in a Jewish home. They hold a parchment with the shema, the most important prayer in Judaism, and they sanctify a Jewish home. Their significance in the home makes them a perfect housewarming or wedding gift, and the botanical theme of this piece makes it especially appropriate for nature-lovers. A pioneer of Jewish ritual art, Gary Rosenthal has been making Judaica for over forty years. He uses a portion of his profits to give back to the community.
