Halacha - Mezuzah - All Doors?
Submitted by Paul Ilie  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: One is obligated to attach a mezzuza to all the doors that are in the house, with the exception of bathroom doors and the like. The source for this is the Gemorra Menachos 34A and it is also brought in the Rambam Hilchos Mezuza 6:10 and Shulchan Aruch YD 284:16. I did not find it written explicitly if it is Rabbinic or Min HaTorah, but it seems to me that it is D'Oraisa based on the pasuk "You should write them on the doors (plural) of your house (singular)".
