Guidelines for the Geniza

April 2024, Rabbi Adam Rosenbaum

Heska Amuna Synagogue maintains a geniza in the hallway leading to the small chapel. The geniza is used to provide us space to temporarily store worn-out prayer books and other items (noted below) prior to giving these sacred materials a proper cemetery burial. If you have any of the following items and would like us to include them in our next burial at the cemetery, please ask Rabbi Rosenbaum ( before putting any of your items into the geniza.
