One month before the New Year begins, the Ramat Hasharon Religious Council has embarked on a campaign to check the mezuzot and tefillin of all the city's residents, reports www.mynet.co.il. The council says that all mezuzot sent to it by residents would be checked at no charge, while only a "symbolic" fee would be charged for checking tefillin. The report said that a special examiner was being appointed by the council to carry out the task. Checking mezuzot is traditional in Elul, the last month of the Hebrew calendar. Rosh Hashana this year falls on September 19.
