Shaimos-related issue


Should reform ‘siddurim’ be put in shaimos or burned?


The siddurim should be put into shaimos, and not burned. See the following post  regarding Messianic prayer books. Messianic prayer books contain outright clear heresy and apikorsus, therefore they should be burned, however the siddurim of the Reform, although I have never read one, it is unclear that they do contain outright heresy, therefore we can’t say that they are considered a “sefer shkosvo min”.  (Although the person who put out the siddur might be considered an apikorus, but regarding the siddur it wouldn’t be considered “kosvo min”).  See Igros Moshe Y:D 1-172.
