    Wrap up: Mezuzahs belong to my neghbors.

    As block captain, I sent out an email to people on my block about various issues and included a photo of the Mezuzahs. New neighbors claimed them. I guess they didn't see my notice on Nextdoor.

    Mystery solved.

    My mother converted to Judiasm when I was 38 years old. That doesnt make me Jewish by ethnicity or history by my reckoning.

    Yes, you are right, by Jewish law you are not Jewish as your mother converted after you were born. Well, all I can say is, everything happens for a reason. You did a good deed trying to locate the proper owner.
