Door-Posts

Resource Toolbox
The Jews were commanded to write the divine name on the posts (mezuzoth') of their doors (Deuteronomy 6:9 ). The Jews, misunderstanding this injunction, adopted the custom of writing on a slip of parchment these verses (Deuteronomy 6:4-9 , and 11:13-21), which they enclosed in a reed or cylinder and fixed on the right-hand door-post of every room in the house.
