Mezuzah house calls Is your Mezuzah a blessing? If it\'s an "original" hand written Mezuzah on scared parchment, if it\'s written in Torah script by an ordained and dedicated scribe, then it identifies, sanctifies and protects your home with its blessing. But, if you are not sure, or your Mezuzah has been up for more than 7 years, which according to Jewish Law, it should be inspected to ensure that the ink has not faded and that parchment is still intact. Call us at 202-1124 and we will be happy to come to your home, free of charge, and assist you on any way. If you are moving into a new home, apartment, or office, we will help you make the proper blessings and put up the Mezuzah correctly.
