For centuries Jews have attached a mezuzah (“doorpost” in Hebrew) to the outside of their doors. Although intended as a means of protecting the household, the mezuzah isn’t an amulet or talisman. Instead, the mezuzah guards with a piece of parchment referred to as a klaf that’s stored inside its narrow, rectangular form. On the klaf are two paragraphs from the Torah that outline the basic beliefs of Judaism, including the prayer Shema Yisrael. The mezuzah can be placed on all living spaces—bedrooms, kitchens, and common rooms.
