    It’s no secret that it takes a village to raise a child; so then it’s no novelty that it would take a community to publish the most thorough and exhaustive book available today on the laws of Mezuzah.

    Rabbi Dovid Nissan Bressman has published, and is currently offering, his first halachic book: “Mezuzah Divine Protection and Blessing.”

    Members of the anash community in Los Angeles pooled their respective talents in this unprecedented undertaking in order to create a user friendly halacha guide book on Mezuzah. This book covers all Halacha questions on Mezuzah from purchasing to placing it in your home in the right way. The book includes professional illustrations, halacha lemaase for all customs and circles, and was praised by Anash Rabbonim worldwide. This is a must book for every Shliach and Anash homes.

    “It turns out there was not one book in English that covers all halachos on Mezuzah including Chabad customs”, says Rabbi Dovid Bressman a Rabbi and Sofer in Los Angeles, “so I took it as a personal mission.” Needless to say that his personal experience working in Anash homes and with the diverse Jewish community in LA reflected the necessity of an authoritative guide book in which everyone (from laypersons to rabbis) can find an answer to his or her question or scenario.

    Together with the assistance of Sta”m Posek Rabbi Moshe Weiner from Yerushalayim, Rabbi Dovid Feld and Rabbi Dovid Diamand, friends from his community in LA, the team worked on this project for over 2 years. Rabbi Bressman did not hesitate to tackle any unclear perceptions and even the biggest misconceptions including “heker tzir” that affects the way one places a mezuzah according to Chabad custom. The book is written in a way that it is suited for any home, as it covers Ashkenazic and Sefardic as well.

    This book covers every topic relating to the mitzvah of mezuzah, including but not limited to purchasing, mezuzah checking, mezuzah cases, mezuzah affixing, and moving in and out of a home.

    Rabbi Bressman concludes: “The laws and customs of affixing a mezuzah are some of the most complicated topics in Halacha, yet we all have to do them on a regular basis in our homes and workplaces. I am certain that this book will be your best help”.

    One can purchase the book at book stores in Crown Heights and Borough Park and on Amazon.

    1. The Nazi propagandists of WWII had a policy that if you repeat a lie often enough people will take it as truth. Since you have seen this idiotic statement “it takes a village to raise a child” so many times you have been convinced it is true. The one who coined that phrase was the machsheiva who is the Democratic party’s #1 choice Hillary Clinton. Tellingly, that elitist obviously didn’t allow her evil daughter to be raised by any village and was carefully nurtured under well chosen leftist propagandists. Her daughter took and is leading a Jewish husband into a life of shmad, pritzus and erva. That is how SHE was raised in a village.
