Question:

Hi,

  1. If one lives (permanently) in a mobile home, does it need a mezuzah?
  2. What if he lives in it but not permanently (i.e. for a week-long vacation)?

Thanks!

Answer:

  1. A person who lives permanently in a mobile home, like those who live in a community of mobile homes, has to put up a mezuza. This is even though it is mobile, but since it is his permanent home, even though it is mobile  it is chayiv in a mezuza according to most poskim.
  2. If it is only meant to be a temporary dwelling, for a week or so, since it is less than thirty days at a time, then it would not need a mezuza. even without a bracha.

Best Wishes
