Halacha - Mezuzah Folding
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
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.

Question:
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:
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:
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:
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)".
