What Blessing is Said on the Mezuzah?

Get your Mezuzah Ready

Just before you affix the Mezuzah you say the traditional Mezuzah blessing. You can say it in Hebrew or translated to any language you understand.

First get the Mezuzah in position with your nails ready or the double sided tape peeled. Make sure you know how high and on what side of the door you want to affix the Mezuzah. When you are all ready, say the Mezuzah Blessing and then immediately, without talking, affix the Mezuzah.

The Mezuzah Blessing

Here is the Mezuzah Blessing in Hebrew, transliterated to English and in English:

Mezuzah Blessing

Baruch Ata Adonai Eloheinu Melech Ha'Olam Asher Kidishanu B'Mitzvotav V'Tzivanu Likbo'a Mezuzah.
Blessed are you, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us to affix a Mezuzah. 
If you are affixing several Mezuzahs one immediately after the other, one blessing suffices for all of them.
