A “Klaf” or a “Mezuzah” is a piece of parchment inscribed with specified Hebrew verses from the Torah. It is a piece of scroll inscribed with specified Hebrew verses from the Torah (Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and 11:13-21). These verses compose the Jewish prayer “Shema Yisrael”. Some interpret Jewish law to require a mezuzah on every doorway in the home apart from bathrooms and closets too small to qualify as rooms. The parchment is prepared by a qualified scribe (a “Sofer Stam”) and the verses are written in black indelible ink with a special quill pen on a kosher animal’s skin. The parchment is then rolled up and placed inside the case.
We hold 4 sizes of parchments: 6cm, 10cm, 12cm and 15cm long. When purchasing our case Mezuzah designs, please check what scroll size is suitable for it. This item cannot be purchased individually, only as an option to add when purchasing a mezuzah.
