What are these words on the back of a קלף?

+2
−0

I recently saw a piece of קלף that had these words on the back: piece of parchment
Note: I'm talking about the words towards the bottom of the parchment, not Hashem's name.
Notice how the words are written facing the other direction from the regular words.
I have 2 questions:

  1. Does anyone know what these words say/mean?
  2. What is the source for writing them on pieces of קלף?

Is this a klaf for writing a mezuzah? (Inferring from the presence of the name.) Monica Cellio‭ 3 months ago

@Monica Cellio I think it was meant to be a mezuzah, but there wasn't enough room for the last paragraph. Dani‭ 3 months ago

Interesting! @Dani, please feel free to write an answer here that draws from what you found there (with proper attribution of course). Monica Cellio‭ 3 months ago

Like any library, this site offers tons of great information, but does not offer personalized, professional advice, and does not take the place of seeking such advice from your rabbi.
