Jewish Text Art Challenge Galleries, July/Tammuz "Ma Tovu Ohalecha Ya'acov" How Goodly Are Your Tents O Jacob

A Mezuzah to Bring the Blessing Home

Shraga Landesman is a Haifa-based artist who invites you to link your home to the ancient Israelite camp. He crafted this mezuzah case as “a moving tribute to the strength of the Jewish home”.  Hanging a mezuzah on the doorpost is a clearly visible sign of Jewish ownership, demonstrating the willingness to be recognized as part of the community. The words from the blessing Ma Tovu express the hope that this connection will support peace and tranquility in the home.
