Senior ultra-Orthodox rabbis have issued a new order concerning women as part of their battle against the dangers posed by the Internet.
During a special conference in Bnei Brak, aimed at “saving the Jewish people from the harms of technology,” the rabbis – led by prominent Lithuanian leader, Rabbi Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman – determined that “women’s workplaces should also be properly blocked, and we must watch out.”
The rabbis likely sought to stress that the problematic aspects of the Web – mainly immodesty issues – posed a threat to everyone, “not just to men.”
The conference was attended by more than 100 rabbis and educators, including Rabbi Nissim Karelitz, one of the most highly respected haredi rabbis in the world, in a bid to “consult on ways to bravely defend the sanctity of the camp in light of the terrible damage caused by technology, led by the Internet, through the iPhone and similar devices, which have resulted in many casualties, Heaven forbid, and unfortunately sent many Jewish families to hell.”
