International Space Station getting space-themed mezuzot


Two rocket-shaped mezuzot by Tel Aviv-based Judaica designer Laura Cowan are scheduled to be sent into space in May on the Discovery mission to the International Space Station. Flight Engineer and Science Officer Greg Chamitoff will carry the works to the ISS (no word yet on where they’ll be placed).

“I was contacted because of the space theme in my work,” Cowan told The Jerusalem Post. “All of my work has been space-themed, since I watched the moon landing on TV in 1969. I saw how excited people were, and just got carried away with the theme.”

The two mezuzot are:

Apollo Mezuza ($125/$140 + $35 for kosher scroll)

Shuttle Pewter Mezuza ($69/$71/$73 + $35 for kosher scroll)
