It makes a beautiful gift!
December 9, 2013
This arrived in a beautiful navy blue box that had a shimmer to it. It was so beautiful, my husband didn't even have to wrap it! The box says "Holy Land Gifts', and then in smaller letters, it has 'shofartallit' written on it. Inside, the mezuzah is form - pillowed in white satin. The picture here does not do it justice. The blue is a much richer navy blue color, and the stones are a little lighter in color, which really shows them off. The mezuzah looks and feels heavy, like it was made from solid brass. I would have given it even higher scores, if it had a full panel on the back of it, to protect the scroll. But it only has a small bar in the middle back, to help hold the scroll in it while nailing it to the door post. So despite its sturdiness and hard enamel coating on the front of it, I would not suggest it for outside use, without extra protection for your scroll.
Overall, it makes a beautiful gift!!
