East Brunswick, NJ – A highly sought after Flatbush Rov who is prominent on the lecture circuit came out strongly against the dangers of technology yesterday on the opening day of 89th Annual Agudah Convention and suggested that the internet be banned in every Jewish home and replaced with tightly supervised internet centers that would be open around the clock, 24/6.
Rabbi Avrohom Schorr, Rav of Kahal Tiferes Yaakov and son of the former Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah V’daath, Rav Gedalia Schorr, z’l, blamed cellphones, texting and internet use for some of the serious problems plaguing klal yisroel today and suggested that the only way to solve these problems is to drastically reduce the use of technology. Suggesting that a kosher-phone-only policy be adopted in America, like it has in places in Israel.
Rabbi Schorr spoke at length about the dangers posed by iPhones, among other technological devices.
Explaining that by removing the internet from every Jewish household in America and allowing people to go online only for work related matters at proposed internet sites, countless Jewish neshamos could be saved, Rabbi Schorr outlined a plan whereby every Jewish neighborhood would house an internet center containing a large number of state of the art computers, under strict supervision, available at all times except for Shabbos and Yomim Tovim.
