First and Only Virtual Mezuzah Widgets Hit Market
Are they Kosher? A percentage of profits go to support an institute in Israel.
For starters, there are 12 mezuzah widgets for sale, each at $7.00. Why $7.00? Because 7 is a number closely associated to God in the Jewish religion. A percentage of profits will go to the Weizmann Institute in Israel for the advancement of science.
Are they Kosher? Not exactly. No. To be Kosher at the very least the scrolls would have to be made of the skin of a Kosher animal, and the ink would have to be made from a vegetable, by a sofer. A virtual mezuzah is a modern take on what the traditional mezuzah is for: Spirtual protection by keeping God on your mind.
While traditional mezuzahs guard the home or car, the virtual mezuzah keeps you focused on God while using the internet, which is the outside world manifested on your computer. With a vast array of junk on the internet and growing, the virtual mezuzah brings a little modernization to the Jewish religion. Users could keep the virtual mezuzah on the left side of their screens, facing the outside internet world, just as a traditional mezuzah is placed on the right side of a doorframe when entering a house. The Shin character is clickable, and slides out the virtual klaf with the Hebrew scripture. Clicking on the Star of David reveals the scripture in English.
