Noah can't sleep in his new home when his family moves from an city apartment to a house in the suburbs until they have a Hanukkat Habayit to which their old friends are invited. He realizes the mezuzot they put up connect them to their past, their religion, and the people they know. At the end of the book there is an explanation of what a mezuzah is, how to install one, and the prayer---in Hebrew, transliterated, and in English---to say when attaching it to a doorpost. ( )
