Can I affix the mezuzah of a dead parent to my doorpost?



  1. Yes, you can. There is no problem with using the Mezuzah of a deceased parent. In fact, there might be a certain comfort in knowing that you are using the Mezuzah that was on your parent’s door for your own home. However, before you put it up I think that it would be a good idea to have it checked by an expert to make sure that it is still, beyond a doubt, Kosher.
