Placing a mezuzah on the doorpost is among the most ancient of Jewish traditions. Elaine and Norman Winik collected mezuzahs throughout their numerous visits to Israle and other Jewish communities. Their collection, bequeathed to OJMCHE in 2017, reflects a wide range of styles and materials and is on public exhibition for the first time.
