Day 9- new roommate

OH, I almost forgot. I have a request from anyone particularly Jewish. My new roommate is kosher, prays twice a day, is currently ordering gefilte fish and wears the whole getup. My question is this: Is there something in the land of Jew that would explain his request that, based on his religion, he needs people to remember to shut the door to the room when they leave? It's not that I disapprove of the idea (doctors and nurses come in at all hours of the night and forget to turn out the lights and close the door when they leave. By all hours I mean 11:30, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9 at night/in the morning). I'm just kinda curious as to what pillar of judaism has to do with closing the door. So yeah, if you know, do tell.



NOTE: I'm half jewish. Kiss my ass.

I have an answer! It may not be exatly right, but a friend of mine (who is Jewish-ish) says that the door closing thing is to keep the angel of death from finding him. So. At least it's not sheep's blood (his words not mine).
