Daf Yomi - Megillah 27 - NOTEBOOK WITH TORAH AND CALCULATIONS

What is the halacha regarding a notebook that has in the beginning mundane matters and at the end has sacred matters? Would there be a prohibition against putting the notebook down in a manner that the sacred matters are on the bottom?

Shulchan Aruch (Y”D 282:19) rules that it is forbidden to place the Prophets on top of a Torah if they are two separate scrolls, but if they are in one scroll, there would be no prohibition to have the Prophets on top.

This scenario could be allowed only because they are both sacred matters, however, when one is sacred and the other mundane, perhaps it would be prohibited. (Chashukei Chemed)

No and No

(I might have been in contact with him in the beginning and he said that it was too difficult.)

Is there no distinction to be drawn between books of nach, on the one hand, and notebooks?

Avromi said...

you are saying that notebooks should be worse, correct?

David said...

Could be either way. Cuuld be that printed texts have less holiness, or it could be that even though they are printed, they are fort torah, whereas the notes and chiddushim might not be so good.
