On Sunday June 10 at 9:30am at Agudas Yisroel Bais Binyomin at 2913 Avenue L, the local ultra-Orthodox community in Flatbush section of Brooklyn will hold a second rally about the Internet.

Contrary to the massive anti-internet rally held recently at Citifield, this one will be conducted completely in English and include women. Rabbis will speak on the topic of “Practical Solutions to Internet Challenges” and attendees will receive a free “Technology Awareness Guide.” The event promises to feature advice from professionals and will be streamed live over the Internet and may potentially be less conservative in its stance about the Internet and its place in Orthodox Jewry.


  • I have a perfect solution that works for 17+ year olds too!

    As a practicing veteran child psychiatrist, I invented ZillyDilly for iPad for ALL parents and teachers to better align technology to family life and children’s needs by child proofing the internet and vetting each site for appropriateness to age group and child development.

    I launched the free app and I would appreciate people’s perusal and review,


    I believe that parents and educators need to be enabled with good tools and the unmatched diversity of free resources online be as available as any app for parents and teachers to give to kids. I believe that home is where kids can learn best media habits.

    I believe that children and families of all communities would benefit from ZillyDilly and am eager for your input.

    Many thanks
