Principals and directors of chareidi mosdos attending the urgent kinos in Yerushalayim on Wednesday expressed their commitment to continue efforts to eliminate the threat that the internet brings to chareidi homes. In response to the recent call from Gedolei Hador Shlita, the directors of the mosdos reaffirmed their commitment to removing this unprecedented threat for the daily lives of the community.
The turnout for the kinos, which was held in Yerushalayim’s Talmid Torah Yechavei Daas was impressive, and the evening’s opening remarks were heard from Rav Berkowitz, the director of the Belz talmid torah in Beit Shemesh. He called on the tzibur to stand united and firm to remove the ‘tuma’ from our lives.
There were many other speakers, including Rav Mordechai Shlomo Steinmeitz Shlita, head of the Har Nof Vishnitz community, who expounded on the dangers posed by bringing internet into one’s home, and the need to oust this danger from our midst.
Delivering a message from Maran HaGaon HaRav Yosef Sholom Elyashiv Shlita was HaRav Yosef Efrati Shlita, who spoke of the responsibility of each and every member of the community towards eliminating this threat. He explained how Gedolei Yisrael Shlita delved into the matter, probing it in-depth before reaching their decision, and they are now in the process of formulating the directive that will be distributed to heads of mosdos, a directive that he expects will be ready in the coming days.
