Custom Handpainted Mezuzah -love Your Neighbor Like Yourself For Sale
Hand painted with a maroon background and stained glass design using pink , yellow, and white.
The hebrew phrase painted on the mezuzah means "Love Your Fellow As Yourself".
To actually love someone else as you love yourself is the antithesis of human nature. In the words of one medieval Jewish thinker, "The human heart cannot take upon itself to love another with the same love as one has for oneself." This led many biblical commentators to interpret the verse not in the literal sense, but rather, that the commandment relates to practice more than emotion; instructing us to treat others favorably and seek the best for them in every way—as you would for yourself. A mezuzah is affixed to the door frame in Jewish homes to fulfill the mitzvah (Biblical commandment) to inscribe the words of the Shema "Inscribe them upon the doorposts of your house and upon your gates" (Duet. 6:and Duet 11:20). This mitzvah is performed by placing a parchment, whereupon is written "O Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your resources....." Size 5cm x18 cm
