By: Rabbi Moshe Heinemann In these turbulent times, many individuals have actually set up alarm systems in their residences which provide a sense of safety. There are different kinds of alarm system which are either linked to a central system or not. But one thing is clear; the system will only work if all the cords are undamaged, the switches embeded in the right series as well as the system remains in working order.
Simply one torn connection can revoke the entire system. Our sensation of safety need to come from the acknowledgment that we have a guard in paradise, instead of relying completely on some mechanical gadget, created by guy. The Ribbono Shel Olam monitors our residences if we do His will. The mezuzah affixed to our doorpost is our defense.
Certain letters are inscribed outside of this mezuzah scroll which claim, to name a few things, that with this mezuzah scroll your home is shielded. Nevertheless, your home is only safeguarded if the mezuzah "system" is intact; if it is made according to the specifications under which it is intended to work.
One has not carried out the mitzvah which she or he assumed they were fulfilling at the time the mezuzah scroll was affixed to the doorpost and afterwards, as well as the blessing that we say when fastening the mezuzah was stated in vain. There are lots of things which can revoke a mezuzah.
This parchment needs to be created from the hide of a kosher animal. The parchment is after that racked up with an etching tool that makes grooves. The grooves have to be made on the side of the parchment that was nearer to the flesh of the animal. When the scribe composes the scroll, he should beware to form every letter in a details way with appropriate spacing in between words.
If there is an inconsistency from the above requirements, the mezuzah scroll is not kosher. It may be repairable depending upon the nature of the trouble, but if it is not repaired it will certainly not fulfill its role as a mezuzah. It would be simply like any kind of other paper on which words of the Torah were composed.
Care must be taken that the parchment ought to be rolled, not folded, to prevent breaking letters, which would render the mezuzah posul, invalid. The mezuzah needs to be rolled from delegated right. The rolled parchment needs to preferably be covered in a preliminary safety plastic wrap covering to produce a moisture barrier.
There is no unique demand pertaining to the material of the case (פיטום הקטורת על קלף). However, it would certainly be best to prevent a tight-fitting mezuzah case where the mezuzah scroll would need to be compelled into the tube. The mezuzah must be fastened on the best doorpost of the entry of the room in an inclined placement, ideally at the bottom of the top third of the doorpost.
