It is a Jewish custom, on the basis of the 2nd commandment, that
certain specific procedures be used for the disposal of any book or work
on which the name of God is inscribed (usually Bibles or prayerbooks).
To avoid having a regular piece of paper bound by those restrictions,
observant Jews spell God "G-d".
