Kosher parchment scroll (klaf) written by an Israeli scribe (called a Sofer Stam in Hebrew). Size 7, which is 2 3/4 x 2 1/2 inches. This mezuzah scroll will fit most mezuzah cases.
This is the scroll that is put inside the mezuzah cases. It contains the Jewish prayer, the Shema, beginning with the phrase: "Listen, Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One." Mezuzot are placed on entry doors to fulfill the Biblical commandment to proclaim the Shema "on the doorposts of your house and on your gates."
These are Ashkenazi style - written on animal skin without bleaching so the natural beauty of the skin shows through.
