This small handpainted Flower Mezuzah ($60) is most enchanting and magical. For those of not familiar with mezuzahs, they're affixed to the door frame in Jewish homes to fulfill the mitzvah of inscribing words of the Shema on the doorposts of the home. Parchment is prepared by a meticulously trained scribe and housed in a decorative case. On it is written versus from the Torah in black ink with a special pen. The parchment is then rolled up, placed inside the case and affixed to the door frame. Giving this as a Hanukkah present would be a good mitzvah!
