Rick Perry’s Mezuzah
Los Angeles-based MezuzahStore.com has created a large stone mezuzah in honor of the Texas governor, a tribute that follows Perry’s June signing of a law that explicitly protects the right of state residents to post religious objects outside their doors. The law was a response to a legal case brought forward by a Jewish couple in Houston after their homeowners association demanded they remove their mezuzah.
Described by the Web site as a “Texas style mezuzah,” the piece costs $999 — and, at 26 inches, reflects the maxim that “everything’s bigger in Texas.”
Potential buyers should act fast - for the moment, at least, only one Rick Perry mezuzah has been made.
