Jaime Checkley RELI 1001 Research Experience #2: Judaism The Origin and Significance of the Mezuzah Many followers of the Christian faith are accustomed to learning the story of Moses and the Ten Commandments given to him by God atop Mt. Sinai. This list of moral and religious statements is one of many parallels that can be drawn between the religions of Christianity and Judaism, and serves as a common foundation for both beliefs. One such commandment in the Jewish religion can be seen in the fifth book of the Hebrew Bible, Deuteronomy 11:20 which states “and thou shall write them on the doorposts of thy house and within thy gates”, in reference to the word of God. Deuteronomy in the Hebrew Bible is known as Devarim, which roughly translated means “the spoken words”. The book of Deuteronomy is taught to both Jews and Christians as the collection of sermons that Moses gave to the people of Israel before he led them into the Promised Land. The Promised Land being a general region that was deemed the area that God laid out for the people of Israel.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
