Question
My mezuzah scroll came to me unrolled, in a vacuum-sealed plastic. My question is, can I roll up the mezuzah while inside the protective plastic... Or must I take it out of the plastic, roll it, and then put the plastic back on?

Question
Dear Rabbi, I am making a needlepoint cover case for a mezuzah and there are two inserts available. One is hand-written, the other one is reproduced. Is there a religious difference, or just a price difference? Thanks.

Can you explain the significance of having a mezuzah on your house and its power to guard the household, as opposed to it being just a superstitious belief? Thank you!

Question
I’ve seen people kiss the mezuzah when leaving or entering their home. My question is: Why? Btw, I really enjoy the questions and answers you post in your weekly Shabbat Shalom newsletter. Thanks!

Question
The mezuzah on the door to my room was put up many years ago. I’m planning to change the case on the mezuzah for a new and decorative one that I received as a present. I was wondering if perhaps the writing on the mezuzah also should be checked when I replace the case. It’s been a long time, but I don’t really have any reason to suspect there’s a problem. Thanks for this wonderful service.
