Notes
Mezuzah (Heb. literally "doorpost") refers to one of the 613 commandments in Judaism which requires that a small parchment (klaf) inscribed with two sections from the Torah's Book of Deuteronomy (6:4-9 and 11:13-21) be affixed to each doorpost and gate in a Jewish home and business. A small case or box typically covers the parchment.
