A "Klaf" (קלף) or a "Mezuzah" is a piece of parchment inscribed with specified Hebrew verses from the Torah. It is a piece of scroll inscribed with specified Hebrew verses from the Torah (Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and 11:13-21). These verses compose the Jewish prayer "Shema Yisrael", beginning with the phrase: "Hear, O Israel, the LORD (is) our God, the LORD is One". In mainstream, i.e. Rabbinic Judaism, a mezuzah is affixed to the doorframe of Jewish homes to fulfill the mitzvah (Biblical commandment) to inscribe the words of the Shema "on the doorposts of your house" (Deuteronomy 6:9). Some interpret Jewish law to require a mezuzah on every doorway in the home apart from bathrooms and closets too small to qualify as rooms. The parchment is prepared by a qualified scribe (a "Sofer Stam") who has undergone many years of meticulous training, and the verses are written in black indelible ink with a special quill pen on a kosher animal's skin. The parchment is then rolled up and placed inside the case.
