First Anniversary of Internet Asifa - String of Asifa's planned in frum communities
Its been almost a year since the Internet Asifa took place at Citifield last year on Erev Rosh Chodesh Sivan. The Ichud Hakehillos in continuing their message and awareness of the dangers of the Internet and technology, plan on having many Asifa's taking place this coming Thursday May 9th 2013, 29 Iyar Erev Rosh Chodesh Sivan 5773, Yom Kippur Katan.
While the Internet Asifa brought awareness to the issue and dangers of the internet, there is still a long way to go as this is a constant battle that will require to keep on having an Internet Asifa in each community. While many got filters for their computers or got rid of the smart phones, the askanim did not do the proper follow up in implementing ideas and solutions from experts in the field. הדר קבלוהו
