Kaminker and rabbis from Chabad-Lubavitch of Camden and Burlington Counties and Chabad-Lubavitch of Medford, who are leading the campaign, hope to empower Jewish people concerned about their safety to rely on their strong faith through the symbolism and ancient history of the mezuzah.
“I think it’s a lovely sentiment,” said Jennifer Dubrow Weiss, chief executive officer of the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey. “When tensions and fears and anxieties are high, it’s a beautiful thing to give peace. I have mezuzahs on every door.”
So far the rabbis have visited neighborhoods in Cherry Hill, Voorhees, Collingswood, Haddonfield, Haddon Heights, Marlton, and Medford. They hope that other religious leaders of all affiliations will follow suit.
