The European Center for Jewish Students (ECJS) recently celebrated its first full decade of operation by holding a long awaited Asian convention in the Turkish city of Istanbul, a historic landmark city that straddles the continents of Europe and Asia. The Brussels-based Jewish Youth Organization, gathered in the famous city —boasting such iconic sites as the famous Blue Mosque, the Topkapi Palace and Grand Bazaar – in part to celebrate the launching of their exciting new Mezuzah Project.
The groundbreaking ECJS project offers free Mezuzot to individuals ages 18-39, with the stated goal of placing 5,000 mezuzot on the doorways of Jewish homes across Europe.
According to their website, once an individual submits a request, the mezuzah will be mailed to their local Rabbi who will affix the mezuzah to the doorpost of their home in accordance with Jewish law.
More information on obtaining a free mezuzah through the European Mezuzah Project can be found on the ECJS website www.ecjs.org
