We’re dedicating new Siddurim on the first day of Shavuot. In honor of this wonderful occasion, we’re using the counting of the Omer to learn about the siddur.
Enjoy today’s siddur related question and answer, which was provided by Jen S..
What’s the best way to honor a fraying prayer book?
But, by burying or storing the old siddur, are we in danger of accidental paganism where we put too much power on papers with G-d’s name, when G-d is so much greater? Are we not better off honoring G-d by recycling and protecting G-d’s world? On the other hand, is recycling a fitting end for much valued prayer book that accompanied its users for many years? Repairing old prayer books that has passed through many hands is most ideal, but if it is no longer useful, what would you do?
