(JNS.org) A Jewish man from the Queens borough of New York City is selling a Christian mezuzah dubbed the Christooza. Henry Zabarsky has created a hollow cross made from plastic which, like a traditional mezuzah, contains a prayer-inscribed parchment and must be affixed to a door post.
Zabarsky, a financial adviser, came up with the idea from a “very religious” Catholic client, reported the New York Post.
“There were pictures of Jerusalem everywhere, crosses. And I was thinking, Jews have this mezuzah—so why not create one for everyone else?” Zabarsky said.
The Christoozas are sold on Zabarsky’s website for $20. A customizable option with a unique blessing is available for another $5.
