Writing "Shalom"


The word "Shalom" is sometimes written as one of Gd's Names (which may not be erased), but it is not normally written with this intent.

One may write "Shalom" meaning "peace", without concern. However, one should not write it as part of a blessing, as in "Shalom uVerachah", if the text will be treated in a disgraceful way. Either way, it does not require burial, for it is not considered one of the unerasable Names of Gd.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:40:3)

Have a great day,
