The Mitzva of Mezuzah
This week the 7th graders learned about the Mezuzah. They asked each other questions about the laws of the Mezuzah. Do we put a Mezuzah in a boat, a storage room, etc… I explained to the students they were reenacting what the great Rabbinical Sages did in the year 200. The students went around the school to make sure all the appropriate location had Mezuzot. Next week, we will be looking in the text (the Talmud, the Torah, and the Shulchan Aruch) to understand what are the laws of the Mezuzah. The students are starting to understand the Torah is a living document.
