World's largest mezuzah

Is that a mezuzah on your door, or are you just glad to see me?

Jerusalem-based Avraham-Hersh Borshevsky has the distinction of being officially recognised by Guinness World Records as the scribe of the world's largest mezuzah.

When measured by the keepers of records, Borshevsky vital stats for his mezuzah were 37 inches long, 30 inches wide and its container measured 43.3 inches.

Born in 1970 in the Ukraine town Korosten, Borshevsky grew up in St Petersburg and in 1990 emigrated to Israel. After intensive training, he was granted his certificate to be a Torah scribe in 1994.

His other illustrated work includes a Megillat Esther scroll, Song of Songs scroll as well as illustrating other Jewish lifecycle events including weddings.

For those interested in his work and buying a customised piece of Judaica, he can be contacted via his website and commissioned.

And if you just want to say hello to him and see his work in person, his Jerusalem gallery is open every day apart from shabbos and Jewish holidays.
