My Great Uncle Binyomin Maryles

What a Joke!

Hmmm..... Maybe Charedim do know the value of the interent after all.

They are using the very social media they hope to filter out of their homes to promote a gathering dedicated to that proposition! This picture (note the I-Pad) and the accompanying story in the Forward makes a mockery of the entire enterprise and makes Ultra-Orthodoxy look foolish and stupid! Unbelievable!

R' Aizik Ausband, 1962

BMG's Shavuos Fundraiser

How ironic is THIS! Lakewood's Mashgiach, HaRav Matisyahu Salomon is pushing this big internett Asifa telling everyone that despite the reality of the internet, one is better off without it... that it is the great Nisayon of our day; that filters and the like are at best a B'Dieved but a reality nonetheless...and I get this in my inbox today???


I guess when it comes to money, the internet isn't such a Satan after all - is it? Or maybe the right hand doesn't' know what the left hand is doing? Nah...! It's about the money. They need it. I get it.
