Mezuzah Bank - Chabad at NSU

Mezuzah Bank

The Cheapest Security in Town

Our Mezuzah Lending Bank enables all NSJews to proudly display their Jewish pride on the doors of their very own room! Each Mezuzah hanging comes with a special baked treat for the special mitzvah ceremony. The word is spreading like wild-fire and pretty soon we imagine and hope that every room with a Jewish student will have a Mezuzah proudly adorning its entrance.

A Mezuzah is a scroll which has inscribed in it the holy words of the Shema prayer. It is customary to have one hung on the doorpost. This Mitzvah brings protection, and is a proud show of our Judaism.

Let's turn a "Room of a Jew" into "A Jewish Room."


How do I get one? 
To get your own Mezuzah hung up in your room fill out the form below.

For a limited time we have Mezuzahs available for FREE thanks to the generosity of the Mezuzah Club.

 

What is a Mezuzah?  

A Mezuzah mounted on the doorpost designates the home as Jewish, reminding us of our connection to G‑d and to our heritage.

A mezuzah is not, contrary to popular belief, the outer container. The mezuzah is actually the parchment scroll within, on which the "Shema" -- a biblical passage declaring the oneness of G‑d -- is handwritten by an expert scribe.

The mezuzah is also a symbol of G‑d's watchful care over the home. The name of G‑d, Sha-dai, which appears on the reverse side of the parchment, is an acronym for the Hebrew words which mean "Guardian of the doorways of Israel." The placing of a mezuzah on the doors of a home or office protects the inhabitants -- whether they are inside or outside.
