Artist Marit Meisler's offers a fresh, contemporary take on the traditional mezuzah with her unusual and unexpected choice of cement. The durable concrete cast of the mezuzah features a gray detail of three vertical lines, symbolizing the shin.
Meisler was born in Old Jaffa, Israel. Her father, Frank Meisler, a Judaica artist, works in metals in a traditional figural style. Marit Meisler trained in Industrial Design at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. Meisler lives in Israel, where she produces this line of Judaica. Her work is part of the permanent collection of The Jewish Museum.
