Welcome to the Maven’s haven.

Thank you for knocking on our door. Kiss the Mezuzah and step right in.

4.72 Cellar door at an Angle

Q: Our cellar door does not lie completely flat. How do I work out whether it is upright enough to affix a mezuzah on its post?

A: If the top of the post rises to a point that is ten tefachim above the ground, you should affix a mezuzah without a berachah. Of course, the doorway itself must be 10 tefachim long.[1]
