Cellar Door


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?


If the top of the post rises to a point that is ten tefachim above the ground, you should affix a mezuzahwithout a berachah. Of course, the doorway itself must be 10 tefachim long.[1]
