What’s a Mezuzah? Mezuzah is a Hebrew word that means “doorpost.” A mezuzah is a scroll containing scripture from Deuteronomy 6:4-9. . For hundreds of years, Jewish believers have placed mezuzahs in cases on the doorposts of their homes. Whenever they walk in or out of their door, they see the mezuzah and it reminds them to keep God’s word on their hearts, to teach their children God’s word, and to carry God’s word with them wherever they go. Some people put a mezuzah on every door of their home, while others only put the mezuzah on their front door.
Kids Corner Connection: Listen to KC’s The Big Story program. Liz and Lucille find an old Bible left behind by the founders of Terrene. The mayor of Terrene wants to put it in a museum. But is that where God’s word should be? This program focuses on the importance of teaching kids God's word—just like the mezuzah scroll reminds us! After listening, make this mezuzah craft to help remind you that God’s word should be on your hearts. Hang it on your room’s doorpost or somewhere in your house that you will see it daily!
