Exploring the Mezuzzah in Shalom Chaverim

This week in Shalom Chaverim, the 0-3 year old children (and their grown ups!) set off to explore an important Jewish object– the mezuzzah!

Together, we answered such questions as– what’s a mezuzzah?

And… what’s inside there?

We noticed the Hebrew letter shin– and we learned that inside is a special Jewish prayer, the Shema! We set to work building our own mezuzzot with prayer scrolls inside.

Where can we find a mezuzzah? Let’s look together!


Do you see one?

Here it is!


We created our own drawings of a mezuzzah we saw, and then we started creating our very own mezuzzah.

We’ll finish our beautiful mezuzzot next week!
