    Sorry to nitpick but when I see H-shem, I (and probably others) just skip the rest of the article. The whole purpose of using Hashem is to avoid writing Hashem’s name. H-shem does not make any sense. You are making holy a word that merely exists so that we don’t use Hashem’s Name in vain.

    “plus an additional fifth of the original sum!”
    I believe the additional “fifth” is only required if they previously denied the theft under oath.

    I see Yossie’s point, but when a non-Jew sees the word “G-d” for the first time, he is likely to ask his Jewish friend the purpose for that. That might spur the Jew to start thinking about God and the holiness of His name. And the non-Jew, too. So what if it is “pointless” to include the hyphen? I’m sure it has led to many a good Jewish conversation.

    This is a really inspiring thought for me to take into the new year. Thank you.

    I’m sort of curious what your Herziliah brother is doing with $50K (presumably US currency) in cash in his safe.
