World's Largest Mezuzah at Western Wall

The world’s largest Mezuzah has been affixed to a passageway near the Western Wall in Jerusalem by Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitz, Rav of the Kotel, and Mr. Shmuel Flatto-Sharon, the Mezuzah’s sponsor.

The Mezuzah case is made entirely of bronze and weights 88 pounds; it is about 4.5 feet tall and a little less than a foot wide.

 The parchment scroll is about 2 feet by 2 feet, and was written with a quill by the veteran scribe Rabbi Zalman Michaelshvili.
