Dear Rabbi Gutnick
I am attaching a photo of a kitchen (The photo needs to be rotated so that the lights are on the ceiling).
It is a kitchen. Entering it there is no real kitchen wall, only cupboards that block it off from the rest of the structure. Entering the kitchen is a large upright wooden beam that goes all the way to the ceiling. It forms a "tzuras hapesach". Does it need a mezuzah. If so, with or without a brocha?
