Mezuzah Placement Shailoh

In the picture below, it is a safek if it requires a mezuzah because the owner is not sure if the pillars are there for support or as an entrance way of sorts, so he was instructed by his rav to put up without a bracha.


My question is, do we put it in the first tefach of the pillar, as is the custom, or in the center of the pillar so it will be under the main mashkof.

Furthermore, if you look closely, do you consider the white rendering on the pillar as part of the mashkof, because then, seeing that it overhangs a few centimeters even in the first tefach of the pillar, it may be considered then being under the mashkof.

  1. Since the Rav instructed him to put it up, he should follow his Rav's instruction [but I think these pillars are totaly patur].
    You are correct that the mezuza should be placed under the mashkof, which is the built part and not consider the white rendering as part of the mashkof.

  2. There is also a chance that the Rav may reconsider based on more authoritative information. The Rav should be privately contacted and presented with the basis for the above columns not requiring a mezuzah. If the Rav reconsiders, then he himself should instruct the owner directly as to how to proceed. There should not be anyone else interceding unless that person is directly instructed by the Rav to do so on his behalf.

  4. The shala is a good one anyway since if the scenario would be the same but wit a 10 tefach gait and door enclosing the entry area,it would then need a mezuza
