In a Jewish-owned and -operated mifa'al (factory/business), there is a room that is designated for the non-Jewish workers where they can eat, rest, etc. The room is used for nothing else (not even for storage purposes). Does the room need a mezuzah?

  • pretty sure it does. what establishes the requirement is the fact that a Jew owns the building, I think – user1892 Sep 11 '12 at 12:15

    Hi YMW and welcome to Mi Yodeya. This seems to fit better as a comment than an answer, though if you can expand on it or bring a source please do post an answer. I look forward to seeing you around the site. – Monica Cellio Sep 11 '12 at 14:30
  • Yehoshua, would you please edit into the question your reason for mentioning eretz Yisrael, for assuming that that's relevant? – msh210 Sep 11 '12 at 15:28

This site gives some excellent information about mezuzot and is worth browsing through. As you can see, from the part of it that I linked to, a room needs a mezuzah so long as it is either owned or rented by a Jew, whether or not it is a room in which people dwell.

The book reviewed here, by Rabbi Reuvain Mendlowitz, looks to contain a lot of excellent information on the question that you have asked as well, and will be available shortly.
