Maybe it was a mezuzah from Black Hebrews?
Dunno…
And about the mazel – yeah, makes sense. He’s lucky it was just “that luck could’ve been better”, we had a really bad stretch – not just “could’ve been better” but real tzarot – when the tefillin had an issue – and it wasn’t even a kashrut issue, more of a yashrut issue because the guy who sold it was dishonest…

the mezuza cant be from so long ago as the dollar is from series 2009. you can probably get more history on previous tenants and who may have done this…

I have a feeling that somebody who didn’t like the previous owner put replaced the mezuza with those scrolls…

Why else would ANYONE, even someone selling fake mezuzas put a bunch of curses and a dollar in there…

Very hard to make out more than one or two words at a time, maybe we can “crowdsource” the translation. First word of bottom line appears to be siempre, which means always.

I should have guessed! Of course a boy like Lazer would be the one to save the day! At such a young age Lazer is changing the world. This is not the first time he has helped another Jew in a great way. Keep up the great work!

Innocent Jewish business men trying to do what’s right ends up with a mezuzah like this. And who knows what it took to get him to put up a mezuzah in the first place. There should be more troubles in the world!!! We need moshiach!!!!

Thank you

Were previous owners jewish . A lot of people buy mezuzahs and put there own scriptures in its very common in the world . The mezuzah is reoresented across all religions also the yad . Many people buy mezuzah casings and put there own scriptures or something they value inside . Obviously money was placed in with a specific scripture for good luck . I highly doubt previous owner was jewish .

It’s probably a trick some pulled. They stole the parsha inside and left a dollar

It’s there a way I can donate for such a worthy cause?
I would like to help such projects.
Which chabad house do they belong to? Or are they in the yeshiva?

I’m an alumnus from yeshiva, the shluchim of yeshiva Gedolah run Mivtzoim, In fact I think one of those Bochurim is a shliach in Yeshiva. I’m sure they would appreciate your help. Yeshiva is in rabbi avremel korf s building. Its an awesome very impressive story and the shluchim in Yeshiva do great work

Lazer told me the story as soon as he came back from Mivtzoim on Fri, and I still can’t get over it. And it reminded me to take down and check my mezuzas

A free dollar!!!

If someone put it there on purpose, they should investigate and arrest the guy. If it’s in diamond district, maybe their security cams have the videos saved for a few years… Anyone?
