The Map of Israel Mezuzah is fashioned from pewter, and textured so as to evoke the mountains of the Middle East, as well as the ancient parchment that this map of Israel was originally drawn on.
The golden Hebrew letter SHIN represents Shaddai (God Almighty's) place within the nation, while the locations and names of cities in Israel are both educational and serve as a spiritual reminder that we are to bless and pray for Israel.
Comes in a decorative box that displays the product on the front, and the instructions to put up the mezuzah on the back.

The Hebrew word mezuzah means doorpost. The mezuzah case should contain a rolled parchment scroll inscribed with the biblical passages Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and 11:13-21, which begins with The Shema -- the verse which declares our belief that there is only One God. The verses also remind us of the commandments to love and serve God with all of our heart, soul and might and teach His precepts to our children.
When a mezuzah is affixed to the doorpost, the following blessing is offered: "Blessed are you, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, Who has sanctified us by Your commandments and has commanded us to affix the mezuzah."
