- Confused about the different levels of kashrut and the wide range of prices for mezuzah parchments? Not sure which level of hiddur, beauty and exactness of the writing, is right for you? HaSOFER's kosher l'hatchila l'bracha, basic kosher mezuzot meet all the required minimum standards of Halacha, Jewish law, for kashrut and writing quality.

- All of HaSOFER's mezuzah klafim are written by our own certified sofrim, scribes, who use only the highest quality natural parchment and ink. Each klaf is examined twice manually by certified megihim, examiners, and then also checked by computer. The kashrut level and price of every mezuzah klaf is set by HaSOFER's poskim according to the scroll's adherence to Halacha, Jewish Law, and its level of hiddur, beauty and enhanced level of kashrut.
- Life expectancy of all of HaSOFER's 10, 12, 15 and 20 centimeter mezuzah parchments is approximately 20 years and not a factor of the price you pay for the klaf. 6 centimeter and 7 centimeter mezuzah parchments have a shorter life expectancy as the smaller letters have a smaller surface area for bonding to the parchment. The actual lifespan of a mezuzah klaf varies greatly, depending on how much it is exposed to heat, cold, dampness, dust, direct sunlight, and other factors.
