Halacha - Mezuzah Folding
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: I had my mezuzos checked by a sofer, and when he was done he gave them over to a bochur to roll them unsupervised. I noticed that as the bochur was rolling them he was initially folding the klaf - i guess to make it easier to roll. I wanted to know if there is anything wrong with that. Thank you.
Answer: If they are folding it at a point which has writing, there is risk it could crack the letters rendering them invalid. If it was folded on the empty margin, this is a common practice and perfectly acceptable.

Halacha - Mezuza for Non Jews
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Am I allowed to take town a mezuza on the house of a neighbor who is not Jewish, but bought the house from Jews and left the mezuza up?
Answer: Not only are you allowed to remove the mezuza, but it should be removed if Jews no longer live there. Of course, you should first get permission from the current owner.

Halacha - Mezuza
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: I've yet to understand the inyan of kissing a mezuza. Is it required? I see some pple kiss it every time they pass one (inside the hse), some only upon entering/leaving, some never. Some when they go into shul, and there's even a mezuza at my doctor's office, though I didn't think that's required. I can guess the simple meaning, but what's the deeper meaning, and what is the halacha? Thanks, and gmar chasima tova.
Answer:

It is appropriate to show our love and respect for the mitzva of mezuza by kissing it when we pass by, just like we kiss the Sefer Torah in shul. However, there is no obligation in halacha. A doctor's office is obligated in a mezuza, as it is a place where the doctor would occasionally eat and even take a nap, so it is used similarly to a house.

Halacha - mezuza
Submitted by chaim  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: In my bungalow I have a door in my bedroom that goes directly outdoors. It is almost always used for going out and never used for coming in. Would it then make sernse to put the mezuza on the right side facing the outdoors being that that is the "room" that door is used for?
Answer: The mezuza always goes on what would be the right side of the door when walking through it in the usual direction. In this case that would be the right side going out, as you suggested.

Halacha - Mezuzah - All Doors?
Submitted by Paul Ilie  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Is it obligatory to fix a mezuza on all or most doors in a house or apartment? Is this Rabbinic law or Chumash-based. Where, please? Thank you. Paul Ilie
Answer: One is obligated to attach a mezzuza to all the doors that are in the house, with the exception of bathroom doors and the like. The source for this is the Gemorra Menachos 34A and it is also brought in the Rambam Hilchos Mezuza 6:10 and Shulchan Aruch YD 284:16. I did not find it written explicitly if it is Rabbinic or Min HaTorah, but it seems to me that it is D'Oraisa based on the pasuk "You should write them on the doors (plural) of your house (singular)".
