"And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."
There is a right way of dealing with things like this. A Mezuzah (sp?) can be really, really small and plain.
or it can be elaborate and obvious.
If you wanted to put a cross on your doorpost and you used a tiny one, nobody would notice or care.
I just wonder how noticeable this mezuza was.
And I'm NOT taking a side here. As they say, I don't have a cat in this race.
what she wants to do is install it on the community-owned property
the community's HOA board has advised her that to do so violated the HOA agreement she agreed adhere to upon buying the property
i suspect your confusion is the wrong belief that the front of her condo unit is her own property to do with as she pleases. that location, where she has affixed the gifted mezuzah, happens to be commons area. which is why her request must be submitted to and approved by the HOA board
there is nothing to indicate this resident has sought such authorization from the HOA board
