God, name of in Judaism
According to Jewish law, only the high priest could pronounce the tetragrammaton once a year on the Day of Atonement. The name of God cannot be erased or discarded from any document (see GENIZAH), and it is forbidden to use any of the biblical names of God in a secular context. Among very orthodox Jews, it is even customary to avoid writing God in the vernacular, and G-d is preferred.
