Mezuzah Extras

Hi everyone!

We hope you are excited about this month's box.  It's time to make a mezuzah!

In your box, you will find everything you need to create your own artistic klaf.  Did you know that a kosher klaf has to be written by a sofer and that it takes between 1-2 years for a person to be trained to be a sofer?

You can watch a real sofer create a klaf (this video is sped up, so it would actually take about two hours!) here:

And if you want to follow the rules as much as you can to be like a real sofer, go to this website:


Of course you need a mezuzah for your personal klaf!  You have everything you need to create one in your box.  If you want to watch the video on how to make it, watch it here!:

We, at Shalom at Home, wish you many blessings in your home (and don't forget that sometimes blessings come from things that at first don't seem like blessings!).
