Why is the Hebrew letter Shin at the top of every page?


We call this a Mezoogle. Your Mezoogle is an interactive virtual Mezuzah attached to the doorpost or gateway to your site and the pages and content within. If you click on the Shin the Shemaprayer appears in a pop-up. According to Jewish tradition, a mezuzah is affixed to the doorframes in Jewish homes and places of occupancy. This action fulfills the mitzvah to inscribe the words of the Shema “on the doorposts of your house”. Your synagogue website is sacred space which now has a “cyber- mezuzah” attached to each and every page.
