Mezuzah Question

 

Question:

In an apartment with only one entrance: a sliding door (no tzir) between the dining room and a bedroom. (The bedroom has no other doors, but it has large windows that a person could go through.)

Derech Biascho is that you enter the dining room and then enter the bedroom. As for chashivus, I was told the dining room is more choshuv. Should the mezuzah go on the right side going from the dining room into the bedroom, or the opposite?

The apartment map is attached. Thank you.

 

Answer:

It should go on the right side entering from the dining room into the bedroom.

[This assumes that the rail is centered with relation to the sliding panel, and doesn’t serve as a Hekker Tzir.]
