A time for peace 🙂 in the meanwhile its warR@ Click here to listen to our leaders in Jerusalem -> http://soundcloud.com/strugglegroup613/sets/kennes-chizuk-facing-the Internet!
I just found this poster advertising a Kennes Chizuk, “Facing the Challenges of Modern Technology”, scheduled for June 17/27 Sivan. The speakers at the event will be R’ Yitzchok Berkovitz, R’ Yaakov Hillel of Ahavat Shalom, and R’ Yosef Elefant from the Mir. The speeches will be only in English, catering to English speaking Bnei Torah. It seems that women are not invited. The event will take place at 8:45 in Bais Yisrael Hall at 16 Ezras Torah. There is a 10 nis admission fee. A live broadcast for women will be available on Kol Halashon by calling 03-617-1111. For more info or to book advance/group tickets, call 02-653-6007.
Just adding someone elses two cents <- I find it funny that while the Asifa speeches in America were given in Yiddish, in Israel, the speeches will be given in English. עולם הפוך ראיתי

Rabbonim change strategy, refocus the battle against Internet and technology.
Speaking on May 2nd at the United Lubavitcher Yeshiva in Crown Heights, Rabbi Friedman called the internet the nisayon of today’s generation and advised students to do what Jews have been doing for years – stay strong and withstand the test that is being placed before klal yisroel.
Rabbi Friedman explained to the bochurim that while for their grandparents, it was communism that enticed Jews to stray from their yiddishkiet, today it is the internet that presents a challenge.
“The test, the nisayon of that generation was, are you going to give in to communism or not,” said Rabbi Friedman. “In our generation, the test is can you handle a computer or you can’t? Can you handle the internet or not? That is the test. Is it any worse than communism? No, communism was much more dangerous.”
Reminding the bochurim that each generation of klal yisroel has withstood its own nisyonos, Rabbi Friedman urged them to use their yiddishkeit to master the potential nisyonos presented by the internet saying, “instead of being afraid of the computer we need to become stronger than the computer.”
Rabbi Friedman told the students that just as Jews over the years have survived the inquisition and communism, they will weather the challenges presented by the internet as well.
“We are much stronger than the internet,” added Rabbi Friedman. “Don’t get so intimidated.”
