Shaimos Alert: Friday’s Wall Street Journal

>>Follow Matzav On Whatsapp!<<

wall-street-journalDear Editor,

Friday’s Wall Street Journal has a picture of an open Sefer Torah on page 12 that may be clear enough to be considered shaimos. It should be disposed of properly.

Thank you.

  1. There is a machlokes regarding if something was printed without kavana to make it holy whether it has kedusha or not. Do you also hold that you need to put every issue of weekly torah publications in shaimos?

  2. Can anyone confirm the “hanhaga” that if a paper was printed without intent to learn from it, than it’s not shaimos?
