MezuzahStore.com was the first ever online store to specialize in Mezuzahs. Here's some things you should know about us.
Why are we here?
Because we are Mezuzah true believers! We think that it is really important for you to have Kosher Mezuzahs on every door of your home.
Only a real, hand-written, Kosher Mezuzah scroll fulfills the Mitzvah that is commanded in the Torah. When you have genuine Mezuzahs on all of the doors of your home, it is sure to bring Divine blessing and protection to you and your family. Since the Jewish people are really one big family, each Mezuzah that is added to a Jewish home, strengthens the whole Jewish people.
Inspired by the Lubavitcher Rebbbe's Mezuzah Campaign, Aaron Shaffier, a certified Torah scribe, started this website in 1999 to make it easy for anyone to order a real, Kosher Mezuzah scroll with a large selection of decorative cases.
Today you can buy Mezuzahs at sites like Amazon.com or even Bed Bath and Beyond. Nevertheless, tens of thousands of people all over the world have chosen to buy their Mezuzah from us. That’s because they know that we are Mezuzah experts. We believe in the products that we offer, and when you order from us, you can be sure you are getting a genuine, Kosher Mezuzah.
Who are we?
Hi, I'm Aaron Shaffier, the owner of MezuzahStore.com. I'm a certified Torah scribe. I've written and checked many thousands of Mezuzahs and written over 12 Torah scrolls.
Way back in 1999, in the early days of the interwebs, I started a website called "eMezuzah" to offer Kosher Mezuzahs to people all over the world.
In 2003 I opened a unique store in Los Angeles called Mezuzah Gallery. It was the first store in the world to specialize in Mezuzahs. The goal was to offer the widest selection of decorative Mezuzah cases along with the highest standard of Kosher Mezuzah scrolls. Also to provide a convenient place for people to bring their Mezuzah scrolls and Tefillin to be checked and repaired.
By 2004 "eMezuzah" was bit outdated. So we changed it to MezuzahStore.com. We added hundreds of new Mezuzahs that we were carrying in our store in Los Angeles. Since starting the website we've shipped tens of thousands of Mezuzahs to people all over the world!
In 2006 I made Aliya to Israel with my family where I'm now a licensed Israel tour guide. Israel Gabay, a certified Torah scribe who apprenticed under me for two years, took over as the main scribe at our store. He supervises the quality of all of our Mezuzah scrolls and Tefillin. He also does Mezuzah and Tefillin checking and repair. I am involved from the Israel side in procuring our products as well as marketing this site.

About our products.
We have worked very hard to assemble a collection of Mezuzah cases which are beautiful as well as of the highest quality. Many of our Mezuzah cases are made in Israel by Jewish artists (check the product listing). We are always adding new items to our catalog.
We believe very strongly in the importance of having Kosher Mezuzahs on every door of your home. This is why we put much effort into ensuring that every single Mezuzah scroll that we ship is 100% Kosher.
First we make sure to purchase scrolls only from scribes in Israel who are well versed in the laws of writing Mezuzahs. We pick scribes who are able to consistently write high quality scrolls at a reasonable price.
We then have every scroll checked by special computer software that ensures that there are no textual errors in the scrolls.
Finally each and every scroll is checked letter by letter by a certified scribe at our store.
We guarantee 100% customer satisfaction. Period!
We know that happy customers are the best customers. We want you to be so pleased with your experience that you order again and again from us and tell all your friends about us. We have many customers who have been coming back for years to purchase Mezuzahs as gifts for house-warmings, weddings birthdays etc.
If for any reason you are not happy with an item that you have purchased from us, you can return it for a full refund. Just ship it back to us and we will refund your card for the full purchase price. NO QUESTIONS ASKED. (But we would love if you add a note letting us know why you weren't satisfied so we can do better next time)
Many websites make it very difficult for you to reach a real person when you have questions or need help with something. We pride ourselves on old-style customer service. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have via email, but we are just as happy to speak to you on the phone to help you with any issues you may have or to take your order. That is why we post our phone number clearly at the top of every page.
