Question:

I had the luck to have with us our grandparents and parents in our marriage, in our sons Bar Mitzvahs, in a lot of events. Now the passed away and I don´t know what to do with all the pictures and posters, albums, etc. Is there any halachic way to act? Judaism tells us what to do with those things? I don´t want just to dispose of them in the garbage…
Thanks in advance

Answer:

Halacha discusses not throwing out seforim and paper that contain torah thoughts because they have H-shem’s name on them. Although emotionally it doesn’t feel respectful to you, halachically they may be thrown out. If you want,  put the pictures into a bag before discarding them.

Best Wishes
