Temple Mount Mezuzah
Please note that each one of these pieces looks a bit different. This is because it is made from stone salvaged from the Temple Mount.
This is a very special Mezuzah with a very special story:
In 2003, the Waqf (Muslim religious authority that administers the Temple Mount) started to do massive construction on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. In the course of this construction, they did a lot of excavation. This excavation was done without any regard to the extreme archeological sensitivity of the spot, which contains stones from the ruins of both the first and second Temples. They took the excavated material and hauled it to a garbage dump in the Kidron Valley outside of of the Old City of Jeruselem.
At that time, an artist in Israel who heard about this story, decided to go to the dump and collect as many of these holy stones as he could. He formed these stones into Mezuzahs. In this way, he felt he could salvage something of the original holiness that these stones had. This is the Temple Mount Mezuzah that we are offering here.
The rough center stone is cut from an actual stone from the Temple Mount. The Temple Mount stone is framed by smooth Jerusalem stone. A letter "Shin" of Jerusalem stone is attached on it's face.
Size: 4 inches
Takes a 2.5 inch Kosher scroll (available below.)

I truly love this Mezuzah. It is beautiful and represents so much to my family. I plan on ordering more of these same Mezuzahs for every room in my house!
What a pair of GORGEOUS Jerusalem Stone/Beis HaMikdash Cases--they Radiate a Special Spiritual Quality, and are Rare and Exquisitely Made.
Great. Can you make more wooden self stick ones too?
I ordered two, one for myself and one for a friend, along with two kosher scroll. In the description it says that the central part is made from stone that comes from the Temple Mount, and had been placed in the dump nearby to hide the fact that there was a Temple. Well, upon inspection, it seems like the piece, quite lovely, is made from one piece of stone and not two...One as a frame and the center piece as the actual Temple Mount stone. First or Second temple period, who is to say, but who is to say that it is not plain Jerusalem Stone. The artist's name is not given, nor are there any written details. It costs quite a bit more than the Jerusalem Stone mezuzah, and so I expected a bit more information.
It's terrific. Please stop sending me emails.
