Is this burning an eternal flame? Evocative of the Ner Tamid that continuously illuminates synagogue sanctuaries, this beautiful mezuzah incorporates multiple Jewish symbols into its design. The Jewish Star encapsulates a small hamsa, symbolic of good fortune and protection. The Chai, representing life, sits within the flame motif. Up top is the letter Shin, representing Sha-dai (God) and the phrase shomer daltot Yisrael ("guardian of the doors of Israel"). This handmade mezuzah is an excellent housewarming or other milestone present for loved ones.
