Is there any source for the common practice of kissing a dropped sefer?

1 Answer 1


Sefer Chasidim 923 says that if 2 Seforim fell on the ground, one should pick up both Seforim prior to kissing the first one.

Aruch Hashulchan Yore Deah 282:11 also mentions kissing a Sefer that fell on the floor.
