This glass mezuzah was inspired by the unique formations, unique shapes and the many colours you can see at Rosh Hanikra in Israel. The beautiful colours on this mezuzah are a recreation of the minerals that are radiated out of the rock formations as they dampen in the sea water and lit up in with lights. The sea pushes and pulls on the minerals causing them to crack, splinter and create amazing natural sculptures.
This Mezuzah case was created using the strip-cut construction technique and is made of clear glass making it water resistant. This has a glue stick pad on the back and also two nails are included which are inside the case. All the clear colours are cut from sheets of glass and then assembled on edge.
Exquisite sea colours are cut from sheets of glass and then assembled on edge. This aluminum Mezuzah, anodized in silver colour was built to fit a Mezuzah parchment (scroll) of 10 cm (about 4").

*Mezuzah is a small box that is placed on the right doorpost of Jewish homes. Inside the box is a parchment scroll with verses from the Torah inscribed on it, including the Shema prayer (Deuteronomy 6:4-9, 11:13-21). The concept of a mezuzah comes from the Torah, where we read, “And you shall inscribe them on the doorposts (mezuzot) of your house and on your gates” (Deuteronomy 6:9, 11:20).
The box that holds the scroll can be decorated in a variety of ways, and often has a Hebrew letter Shin on it, which is the first letter of one of God’s names, Shaddai.
Some people believe that the mezuzah provides special protection over the residents of the home where it hangs, and when they pass by a mezuzah some people have the custom of kissing it (usually touching the mezuzah with their hand, then kissing their hand).
