Ornate and elegant, the motifs on this pewter mezuzah were inspired by a Hanukkah lamp from nineteenth-century
Marrakesh, Morocco. The Jewish artists of Morocco, whose roots lay in
pre-expulsion Spain and Portugal, often integrated these different
cultures in their work, combining arabesque tracings, floral motifs,
stars of David, and latticework.

  • Dimensions: 4.5 x 5 "
  • This mezuzah case is only suitable for indoor use.
  • This mezuzah case comes with two openings to nail into the wall

An enduring symbol of safety and protection for all who dwell within a home, a mezuzah
consists of a prayer scroll in a decorative case, which is affixed to
the front door jamb (and sometimes to interior doorposts as well). They
make an especially good gift for a wedding or housewarming.
