I don’t know about you, but come Motza’ei Shabbos, my house looks like an avalanche of papers—newspapers, magazines, my daughter’s parshah sheets and projects, among many others. Of course everything contains words of Torah in some form or another, and so every week, there I stand, wondering how to clean up the great mess. What am I allowed to throw out? (Never the parshah projects, of course—those must live on until eternity, if I wish to preserve peace in my house and keep three-year-old temper tantrums at bay.) And how am I allowed to do it? Single wrapping, double wrapping—or perhaps it doesn’t need any wrapping?
You can therefore imagine my happiness and relief when I heard about the release of Sefer Ginzei Hakodesh. Finally, a sefer that tackles precisely my problem head-on! Now I can finally have some guidelines about how to dispose of papers with devarim she’bekedushah on them.
But when I leafed through the sefer, I saw that it contained much more than just guidelines about the above. It actually goes through the entire subject of how to respectfully treat any holy article or sefer. Are you allowed to use a shul as a short-cut? What about sitting on a bench that has a sefer on it? What do you do with your leftover Chanukah oil?
All of these questions—as well as many, many more—are answered in Sefer Ginzei Hakodesh—and in such a clear and appealing manner, too. The format is easy on the eye, and the style and language pleasant to follow.
As one who is thrilled to have found such a book, I will be the first to tell you that Sefer Ginzei Hakodesh is a wonderful addition—really a must-have—for every Jewish household!
