In the Jewish faith, Mezuzahs are parchment scrolls on which are written specified Hebrew verses from the Torah: the “Shema”. The scrolls are placed inside mezuzah cases that are affixed to the gates and outer doorframes of Jewish homes to show respect and to bless and protect those entering and residing there. In fact, every room that is big enough to live in is supposed to display a mezuzah on the doorframe.

JFD's "Shalom!" Collection incorporates aluminum containers imported from Israel. The cases are affixed to doorframes with picture-hanging adhesive strips that are included in the design. To be kosher, a mezuzah scroll must be drawn by hand by a specially trained scribe; the mezuzahs included with JFD cases are facsimiles. Kosher mezuzah scrolls are available from most synagogues and many Judaica stores.
Directions: 1. Use a flathead screwdriver to unscrew bottom of mezuzah case and insert your own mezuzah (this can be purchased at some temples and most Judaica shops of your preference; for more information about the tradition and specifics of placement of mezuzahs, visit Mezuzah - The Jewish security system at Chabad.Org).
2. Replace bottom of case and secure again with screwdriver so scroll remains inside.
3. Peel off white adhesive tape from back of JFD Mezuzah case and affix to doorpost.
