Even before rabbonim shlita in the United States decided on the internet kenos being held in CitiField on Sunday night, Rabbonim and mashpi’im in Chabad decided to hold an internet kinnos this week in the 770 building in Ramat Shlomo in Yerushalayim.
The impetus behind the kinnos is Rabbi Dovid Weiss, the director of Merkaz Ohr Chinuch, the daily HaMevaser reports.
The event is expected to last for five hours and rabbonim who will address the kinnos include (in order of their scheduled appearance at the kenos) HaRav Yitzchak Yehuda Yeruslavsky (Secretary of Chabad Beis Din), Rav Yosef Yitzchak Vilshansky (Rosh Yeshivas Chabad Tzfat), HaRav B. Zilberstrum, Rav Dovid Meir Druckman (Mora D’asra Kiryat Motzkin), special guest from the USA Rav Zalman Leib Markowitz, and Rabbi Shmuel Ashkenazi (Mora D’asra Kfar Chabad and member of Beis Din). Many others will be speaking as well.
The kinnos will be closed by HaGaon HaRav Zalman Nechemia Goldberg. The kinnos is scheduled to take place on Thursday, 3 Sivan 5772.
HaMevaser reports it has learned that following the event, rabbonim shlita are expected to release well-defined guidelines regarding internet and electronic devices.
