How to Hang a Mezuzah


Where Should I Hang it?

Affix a mezuzah on the doorway that leads to a proper room, except for the bathroom. They should be placed on the right side of the doorway, about one third of the way down. 

What is the blessing?

Blessed are you, Lord our God, King of the Universe, Who has made us holy with His commandments and commanded us to affix a mezuzah.
