Case 1: I print a english translation of something Kodesh.

Case 2: I mistakenly print out a few pages from a sefer. I have no intention of using those pages and do not learn from them.


Do all of the above printed materials need to go into Geniza? Is there any difference between things printed on a printer and those items that were printed on a proper printing press? (I don't think there is.)

  • How about case 4: I print out something which contains heresy, since I printed it and also contains divrei kodesh, is it shemos? Oct 23 '14 at 16:59
  • In regards to using a press vs. a printer: a press takes significantly more work, meaning that presumably you intended to print it out, whereas for a printer you might accidentally have hit [apple]+P Oct 23 '14 at 17:01
  • Thanks. I added the geniza tag to the relevant links to make it easier for others to find them.

  • I believe it is not about printed or written but more if it contains the Name of G-d or not.
