See Your Portion With & Without Vowels
(Online Tikkun)

What's a Geniza? How do I bring things to it?

What's a Geniza? A Geniza is a place we collect documents with G-d's name and damaged holy books that are to be disposed by burying. You can read more about it in the Jewish Encyclopedia or answers.com.

Where is OUR Geniza? We have two: one is in the CBE main office -- a big red crate on the bookshelf near the door to Rabbi Mina's office. There's also a Geniza that looks like a purple crate in the religious school office, on top of the mailboxes (see pictures below.)

Just bring your used Torah-reading printouts or photocopies (or damaged prayerbooks) during office or religious school hours.

Note: because we're all concerned about respecting the name of G-d, please consider practicing your portion by viewing it in your Tikkun or Chumash and on the computer screen -- then you won't need to worry about the Geniza at all.
