MyJewishLearning.com just published my article on making a mezuzah case from a PEZ dispenser. Rather than a how-to, it’s more of a why and why not?
Here’s the link:
How to Make a Mezuzah with Kitsch and Class. Do leave a comment there, please.
My mezuzah mashup was an excuse to bring in Freud, the Shulchan Aruch, the Talmud, the Second Commandment, and Winnie the Pooh, all in the service of justifying—”making a case for”—a PEZ-uzah.
Is it kosher?
Turns out, not many folks give a flip if my mezuzah case is “kosher”, but even just pondering the question can be ever so fun and informative.
Oh, and Amy Melzter, author of Mezuzah on the Door, just told me PJ Library was adapting my Matchbox Mezuzah craft for the book’s new program guide. Neato.
