MyZuzah Genesis Story

It was a beautiful day in 2014, and our small Jewish nonprofit team was gathered to see how we could help improve and change more people’s lives. Little did we know how much our lives were about to change…

Our beloved team member Nelly stepped through a doorway and leaned on a railing.
The railing broke. Our hearts stopped. Our Nelly fell.

She survived but her body was broken. Our hearts were broken. We were left searching for answers.
We searched the railing, the doorway, the mezuzah on the doorframe, the scroll inside.

One word on the scroll was broken. The Hebrew word for “your gates.”
We checked Nelly’s mezuzah at home. The same word was broken there too.

What was the connection? We went on a journey to find out.

We discovered that the mezuzah is a mitzvah that is uniquely inclusive, accessible and unifying – it has the power to connect and protect all Jews.
When our connection is broken , we are vulnerable.
When our connection is complete, we are protected.

In a broken world, the mezuzah is a timeless link to our heritage with a mystical quality that connects and protects the Jewish people. Jews are diverse. We have different languages, different races, different backgrounds and different ways of expressing our Jewish identities. We decorate our mezuzah cases in different ways, but it’s the mezuzah’s scroll inside that connects us to the eternal values that unify our people.

That is the power of the mezuzah – the power to connect and protect all Jews.
And that is the simple and powerful idea that led to MyZuzah.

Today, Nelly is healing. The mission she inspired is growing. And you can be a part of connecting, protecting and uniting the Jewish world.

Join MyZuzah, and help put a kosher, fair trade mezuzah on the front door of every Jewish home in the world.

It connects us

It Protects us

It unites us

MyZuzah's goal is to put a kosher fair trade mezuzah on the front door of every Jewish home in the world.

Fair Trade

We implement Fair Trade Standards in the sourcing and production of each Mezuzah. A kosher mezuzah takes time, energy and resources to create. Each mezuzah scroll must be hand-written by an expert scribe under specific conditions. MyZuzah puts people first by only working with partner organizations that pay scribes fairly and decently for such important work. Our Standards ensure that every step and worker in the process of creating your mezuzah is ethical and kosher, beautifying this unique touchpoint that unites us.
