Daniel Libeskind, a world famous architect, artist, and set designer, is a Polish born accordion prodigy of two Holocaust survivors. He has used his rather formidable talents to design a cover for the mezuzah gracing the entrance of the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, California. It is a very, very, modern looking piece.
The design for this pewter mezuzah is modeled on the two standard architectural forms which intersect the historic building, based on the Hebrew letters “chet” and “yud.” So this is a very cool piece. You just need to find out which way to hang it. Would you touch it?
