By: Rabbi Moshe Heinemann In these rough times, lots of people have actually set up alarm in their residences which provide a complacency. There are various sorts of robber alarms which are either linked to a main system or not. Yet something is clear; the system will only work if all the wires are undamaged, the buttons set in the best series and also the device remains in working order.
Simply one torn connection can revoke the whole system. Our feeling of safety need to come from the acknowledgment that we have a guard in paradise, as opposed to counting totally on some mechanical gadget, created by man. The Ribbono Shel Olam monitors our residences if we do His will. The mezuzah affixed to our doorpost is our security.
Specific letters are inscribed outside of this mezuzah scroll which claim, among various other points, that via this mezuzah scroll your house is safeguarded. However, your house is just safeguarded if the mezuzah "system" is undamaged; if it is made according to the specs under which it is meant to work.
One has actually not done the mitzvah which he or she thought they were satisfying at the time the mezuzah scroll was affixed to the doorpost as well as after that, and also the true blessing that we claim when fastening the mezuzah was recited in vain. There are several things which can invalidate a mezuzah.
This parchment needs to be generated from the hide of a kosher pet. The parchment is after that racked up with an engraving tool which makes grooves.

When the scribe writes the scroll, he must beware to shape every letter in a certain manner with appropriate spacing between words.
If there is a discrepancy from the above specifications, the mezuzah scroll is not kosher. It might be repairable depending upon the nature of the trouble, yet if it is not repaired it will not fulfill its role as a mezuzah. It would certainly be simply like any various other piece of paper on which words of the Torah were composed.
Care must be taken that the parchment needs to be rolled, not folded up, to prevent fracturing letters, which would certainly make the mezuzah posul, void. The mezuzah must be rolled from left to right. The rolled parchment ought to ideally be covered in a first safety plastic cover covering to create a wetness obstacle.
There is no unique demand relating to the material of the instance (נטלה). Nonetheless, it would certainly be best to prevent a tight-fitting mezuzah instance where the mezuzah scroll would need to be forced right into the tube. The mezuzah needs to be affixed on the ideal doorpost of the entryway of the space in a slanted setting, preferably at the end of the leading third of the doorpost.
