One of the Jewish people’s defining commandments is to transform our houses into identifiably Jewish homes, and we do this by affixing a mezuzah to the doorposts of our entryways. Schools are traditionally exempt from this mitzvah since the commandment only applies to places where one resides. Hillel Day School, however, is truly a second home for our students, faculty, and the Jewish community.
We invite you to join us in fulfilling this important and meaningful mitzvah by dedicating a mezuzah, created by our students, for important spaces within the school. This unique program now encompasses newly renovated spaces like the Early Childhood Center (ECC) and the Little Red Schoolhouse (LRSH). These mezuzot enhance our school with the beauty and holiness of our Jewish tradition, while also supporting other areas of the school.
We are excited to now offer additional mezuzot created by our ECC students for the ECC and others for the LRSH and remaining parts of the school. Many are still available for dedication. This is a wonderfully meaningful opportunity to dedicate a mezuzah in honor or memory of a loved one, or to celebrate a special occasion. Please click on the buttons below to review available mezuzot in various parts of the school. A personalized commemorative plaque by the doorpost accompanies each mezuzah dedication, to be viewed each day by current students and future generations to come.
