Never before has a Pritzker Prize-winning architect designed a mezuzah, enabling you to be a part of history. In anticipation of opening the Audrey Irmas Pavilion doors, we invite you to donate a Rem Koolhaas designed Mezuzah for a door within the building and to receive a second mezuzah for your home. This opportunity is exclusive to the 99 interior doors of the building and will not be sold outside our Temple.

Each Rem Koolhaas mezuzah is handcrafted by his office (OMA) in Rotterdam. The shin letter is waterjet cut aluminum, hand sawed and carved by a metal specialist, and then attached to an aluminum foam and resin casing. This resin is cut into small, medium, and large dimensions and placed in casting boxes. Each Mezuzah goes through a 2-step overcasting process in color-tinted polyester resin to ensure all surfaces of the aluminum foam are infused, forming a unique composite material.

For a tax-deductible donation of $10,000, payable over four years, your mezuzah will be placed on an interior door of the Audrey Irmas Pavilion, your family name will be inscribed on a mezuzah donor plaque located within the building and you will receive a second mezuzah for your home. This will be an extraordinary piece of Judaica for 99 Wilshire Boulevard Temple families and a historic mitzvah opportunity to help the Temple!
