Hey guys, I’m not Jewish and I’m afraid to say I don’t have lots of knowledge on it. I wanted to ask kind of a pointless question for my mom. She was watching a Netflix series about a family of Orthodox Jews in Israel and there is a scene where one of the characters finds a parchment paper (which I understood is an extract or piece of the Torah) and wants to get it restored. They tell him it can’t be restored and then burry it. The question is, is there any Jewish tradition where certain texts cannot be restored because it is forbidden or something like that and is there any reason as to why they burry the text afterwards? They didn’t explain it on the series and my mom was interested in knowing the reason. I don’t know if this is the right place to ask but any answers are welcome.
