Rebbe to followers: Burn your iPhones

| |

The leader of the Dushinsky Hasidic dynasty is threatening to expel any community members caught with a “non-kosher” cellular phone or a computer with Internet connection, including iPhones.

The Rebbe not only called for a boycott of electronic devices which do not meet strict Orthodox rules, but also demanded that they be burned.

During a sermon delivered recently, Rabbi Yosef Tzvi Dushinsky launched an unprecedented attack on the modern devices. “Internet and computers, no need for talking anymore. Anyone caught with a non-kosher device will be thrown out of the yeshiva immediately,” he said.
