We just moved into a new house. Do we need to put up Mezuzos in the basement if we aren’t using it yet?
We moved into a new house but the basement is not ready and we are not using it yet. Do we need to put up mezuzos in the basement? (Would it make a difference if we use the unfinished basement to store bikes or the like?)
If you are not using the basement at all, you don’t need to put up a mezuza on the doors in the basement.
If you are using it for storage, a mezuza should be put up.
