Mezuzah Case

A Mezuzah case is a decorative protective case that holds a parchment inscribed with specified Hebrew verses from the Torah in the book of Deuteronomy from the verses of 6:4-9 and 11:13-21. These verses are inscribed on the parchment scroll including, Sha-dai, one of God’s name, which is inscribed on the other side of the scroll. These verses include the classic Jewish prayer "Shema Yisrael" that describes our love to God and emphasize our belief in the oneness of God.

"Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is One"
A Mezuzah is literally translated as “doorpost”, thus it is affixed to the doorframe in Jewish homes to fulfill the Mitzvah to inscribe the words of the Shema on the doorposts of your house. It is also a Jewish Law requirement to place a Mezuzah on every Jewish doorway in the home not including the bathrooms.
“And you shall inscribe them upon the doorposts of your house and upon your gates.”
The parchment is prepared by a qualified scribe a "sofer stam" who has gone through many years of meticulous studying and training that intricate laws of Jewish scroll writing and the verses are written in black indelible ink using a specific quill. The parchment is then rolled up and arranged in the case.

The Mezuzah needs to be placed inside a protective case. The parchment is then rolled from left to right, in order for the name of God, “Sha-dai,” to be seen at the front. It is then arranged with the right side up inside the case, showing in front the “Sha-dai”. If a Mezuzah case is not available, you can use a thick paper to wrap the Mezuzah, or you can use some other thick material.
However, the actual case is not really necessary. Yet, many do place the scroll in a case to protect it from the weather. Other people make use of the plainest case attainable to emphasize that the beauty of the Mezuzah is not because of the case, but what is written in the actual parchment.

Mezuzahs are often acquired from a Jewish scribe or a Jewish store already rolled and encased. It is important to make sure you get your Mezuzahs from a reliable source, in order for you to be sure that it has been arranged the right way. There are times that Mezuzah cases are sold fraudulently, with a xeroxed paper scroll which doesn't carry out the commandment, or are even entirely empty.

There is so much variety when it comes to Mezuzah cases nowadays, from unadorned plastic cases that cost a few dollars to artistically decorated cases in a range of valuable materials. While it is a good thing to decorate any Mitzvah, remember that the most important thing is to invest in the quality and “beauty” of the scroll inside and what is written on it.
When purchasing a Mezuzah to be placed outside your home make sure that it shields the Mezuzah scroll from the weather. Nonetheless, in numerous circumstances the outdoor Mezuzah is in fact protected from the weather by an overhang or a storm door. If that's the case, there’s no need to limit yourself in buying a Mezuzah case that is waterproof.
