The Tree of Life refers to the Torah, which gives us a framework with which to live our lives. The mezuzah case holds a piece of parchment, upon which is written 2 Hebrew prayers which describe the relationship of God to the Jewish people, as well as man's relationship to fellow men. This box or case is placed on the doorpost of a Jewish home so that one may consider these prayers as one enters and leaves.Many people place a mezuzah on each doorpost within their homes, except for the bathrooms!

This mezuzah is made using the lost wax casting method. I first carved the design from a piece of wax. It is then encased in a special plaster, and the wax is burned out. The negative space is filled with molten bronze. It is then cracked out of the plaster, which is only used once. It is filed and polished, and a special solution is applied to develop the lovely green (verdegris) patina. This color varies and is not always exactly the same shade as pictured. It is then lacquered and waxed to discourage tarnish. Approximately 3-1/4" tall with the loops by 5/8" wide by 1/2" deep. Handmade by Ruth Shapiro. This mezuzah is available in antiqued bronze, sterling silver, or in a deep, choclaty oil-rubbed bronze finish.

Convo me if you want this in sterling silver or antique bronze without a green patina.

This mezuzah case makes a wonderful wedding, graduation, house-warming or bar/bat mitzvah gift. How about one for yourself? Let me know if you would like this mezuzah gift wrapped and /or a gift card enclosed. No charge of course!

This mezuzah case does not come with the enclosed prayer. If you would like a Kosher "scroll" please convo me for a separate sale listing. If you would like a "non-Kosher" printed, as opposed to a hand-written scroll, let me know when you order your mezuzah case. There is no charge for the printed, non-Kosher version.

NOTE: The photo shows 2 sizes. This listing is for the smaller version. If you would like information about the larger version, please convo me! The taller version is 4-1/2" tall including the loops.
