Because Mezuzahs must be made to very exacting laws and specifications, only an expert can determine if a Mezuzah is kosher.

Some basics: The Mezuzah must be hand-written by a competent scribe on specially prepared parchment with the specific types of quill and ink mandated by tradition.

A Mezuzah should be examined by a reliable scribe, at least twice every seven years - once every three and a half years. Constant temperature and weather changes, as well as age, may cause the ink to fade and crack, thereby invalidating the Mezuzah.

A representative of Chabad will make a free house call and visit your home to bring in your Mezuzot for checking. We will send them to a Sofer – a Scribe- who can do a thorough professional letter checking. After he has scrupulously checked them, we shall return them to your home, and re-affix them to their original place.

There is a basic cost of $10 for mezuzah checking, expected one week turn-around. 

We will pickup/dropoff and install your Mezuzah free of charge.
