Toldos Aharon Rebbe: Shofar or Internet, Not both


toldos-aharon-rebbe-eyThe night before Rosh Hashanah, in an address to his chassidim in Yerushalayim, the Toldos Aharon Rebbe issued sharp words of condemnation for any of his chassidim who has unfiltered internet in his home.

“Whoever does not disconnect from the [unfiltered] internet, I cannot be motzie in tekias shofar,” said the Rebbe.

The Rebbe said this applies to all his chassidim, without exception. “Internet without a filter is open to all spiritual dangers,” he said.

Immediately after the drasha, according to various sources, close to 100 chassidim undertook to sign on with a Web service that has a strict and high level of filtering.

  1. hello wake up we got change ourselves and not world around us the medrash says tiku vachodesh shofar “chidshu and shapru “MASEICHEM” OUR ACTIONS WHAT WE DO

  2. a very good filter is netnanny
    recommended to me from a top yeshiva in New Jersey. so far it works extremyly well. you decide what controls you want. me and my husband pick half ma password and if we ever need to overide a block(which is available with netnanny) we both have to put in our password. that way we both know what each other is looking at.
