The Torah states that every doorpost in a Jewish home should display a mezuzah klaf, a small parchment scroll inscribed with two prayers. The scroll is enclosed in a case and attached to the right doorpost to serve as a reminder of the covenant of faith and a notice of an observant Jewish home.
This custom enameled brass mezuzah is based upon one in the Museum. It is modeled after a mezuzah found by a Holocaust survivor in Warsaw in 1945 after his family was able to come out of hiding and reestablish a home. His son eventually immigrated to the United States and took the mezuzah with him, later donating it to the Museum’s collection. The mezuzah comes in a custom gift box with the history of the artifact and is available with or without a kosher scroll. The Museum’s logo is engraved on the back of the mezuzah.
The mezuzah in the Museum’s collection was a gift of Benjamin Meed, in memory of his father Israel Miedzyrzecki (Nahari). Learn more about the fates of Jews in Warsaw.
