A Mezuzah is a little scroll which has inscribed in it the words of the Shema prayer. It is hung on the doorposts of Jewish homes and is a source of God’s protection and a display of Jewish pride. With the Mezuzah Bank, Chabad at Columbia University lends students Mezuzot for their dorm rooms. Sign up to receive yours and we’ll hang it up together.
