Does an office need a mezuzah?

mezuzah

#1

Does an office or office building where people work during the day and go home at night need a mezuzah?


#2

No. And therefore one should not be put up. The only places that need Mezuzot are when people live there. For example if you have a restaurant where the owner lives upstairs, then the restaurant would have a Mezuza too.


#3

What if you are renting a house from a non Jew?


#4

A home needs a Mezuzah, no matter whom you’re renting from.


#5

Let me clarify about the office mezuzah question. If the office is part of a home, even if it’s a separate section in the home, but there’s access back and forth, you may need a mezuzah.

The typical office, store, or Synagogue that does not connect to a home should not have a mezuzah.
