    Whenever we moved my Catholic mother would get a Jewish neighbor to put up a mezuzah on our front door (if it were not already there). But that was in old New York. it was an easy reminder to be briefly prayerful on entering or leaving the home. I believe – I may be wrong – there were versions with the two great commandments from Leviticus (and endorsed by Jesus).

    And Tablet Magazine online reports that the murder of the Palestinian youth was not perpetrated by Jewish settlers, but by a soccer gang…

    Kind of: Only Jesus’s “first” great commandment – to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and might – taken from Deuteronomy – is contained in the mezuzah. The “second” great commandment – love your neighbor as yourself – is from Leviticus but not contained in the mezuzah. Still a pretty important one in modern Judaism: a rabbinic near-contemporary of Jesus cited a variation on this as a summation of the entire Torah (“what is hateful to you, do not do to someone else”).
