THIS IS BEAUTIFUL AND I WISH TO OWN IT.

Of all of the mezuzot (plural of mezuzah) on the doorways of our house, this is my favourite.
Not because of its looks (because it ain’t that pretty). My mom bought it for us in Jerusalem a year ago. Inside, surrounding the carefully-wrapped scroll on which the Shema (prayer: Hear O Israel) is written, is the glass I broke as part of our wedding ceremony.
That, and I got to smash it a lot more with a hammer later, so we could fit the pieces into the mezuzah.
You can tell I was brought up Ashkenazi by the way it’s tilted.
