Beautiful Mezuzot pieces, modern Mezuzot

A mezuzah is a piece of parchment (often contained in a decorative case) inscribed with Hebrew verses from the Torah (Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and 11:13-21 – the Shema). Many people incorrectly believe that the mezuzah is a good-luck charm or that it is connected to the story of the Exodus from Egypt; however, its true purpose is to serve as a constant reminder of G-d’s presence.

Mezuzahs are handwritten on parchment scrolls and placed in a case, which is then affixed to the right doorpost. Some people place one only on the entrance to their home, while others have one on every door frame.

Here are 11 beautiful and modern mezuzot to inspire and delight (in alphabetical order).
