RAV ZE’EV KRAINES, Z”TL
THE MEZUZAH MAVEN
You are at the website which was the brainchild and product of the late Rabbi Ze’ev Kraines OBM. In the last years of his illustrious life, he planned its creation and wrote the Sefer upon which it is based. (To view the introduction and the approbations of leading rabbis, click here.)
The Mezuzah project is a true embodiment of what R’ Kraines stood for. It carries the messages of love of Hashem, the bastion of the Jewish home, and the beauty and pleasantness of all of the Mitzvos.
In his positions in South Africa, including rabbi of Ohr Somayach Sandton for 27 years, as well as principal of Shaarei Torah Primary School for 14 years, he brought hundreds of Jews closer to their father in heaven. By taking up yet another role as the “Mezuzah Maven”, he intended to ensure that every Jewish home would merit to this beautiful Mitzvah and receive the sanctity and spiritual protection from Mezuzos that it deserves. A month prior to his passing, he asked his son R’ Shmuel to continue the Mezuzah Maven project.
Rabbi Ze’ev Kraines passed away after a highly productive life at the age of 65. It is noteworthy that 65 is the numerical equivalent value of the Hebrew word Mezuzah.
