On the back side of the mezuzah scroll, a particular name of God is written. The scroll is rolled after this so that the very first letter, that is Shin, is completely visible. In common practice, this letter is written on the upper exterior portion of the mezuzah case. A mezuzah is usually placed in the doorframe of every Jewish home. This is done for fulfilling the Biblical commandment or the mitzvah for inscribing the holy words of the Shema. This commandment of affixing mezuzah is widely followed also by many not so religiously observant Jews. Over the ages, producing and designing the Mezuzah cases have been gradually transformed to an art form.
It is believed that all Jews should keep their doors open to the world. These doors should have a mezuzah on them. The mezuzot that is created by ramer designs, is specifically meant to be touched by the Jews for awakening and reminding them of the sacredness of the Almighty's name and of their religious tradition. All mezuzahs are handcrafted from rich hardwood. They have a special place on the back for honoring special occasions of the Jews.
