Boro Park – Thousands at Internet Asifa in 18Ave Park.
Inline image 1Close to 45,000 Yidden gathered in frum communities on Rosh Chodesh Sivan 5773 in an effort to be mechazek and reach a higher level of kedusha. The speakers stressed the progress that was made since the first Asifa  last year at Citifield but challenges and struggles still lie ahead. The mashgiach Harav mattisyahu Solomon mentioned the definition of Addiction "to surrender to your habit" how we should work on ourselves to overcome our habits and desires. The mashgiach said while many have installed filters for their computers and phones, that is not the lechatchillah of the level we should be holding at. It is only a bedieved, we should strive to reach a higher level of Kedushah. We have to be afraid of Hashem and have Yiras shomayim. Rav Yitzchok Sorotzkin, spoke about how we must be careful not to fall into the tumah and reiterated the takanos of installing filters. The Mir Rosh yeshiva Rav Elya Brudny spoke about the havdalah Bein hamim that is lacking,  he said  hashem is sending us messages via all the tzaros and gezeiros on the klal. The mere fact that in  America where there was always freedom of religion and now they started up with Bris Milah and Tznius, is all messages that we have to be mechazek in kedusha and seperate ourselves from the secular society and cultures. The R'y also emphasized the addiction that we've been enslaved to by continuously checking our gadgets all day for the latest news non stop, as well as being exposed to lashon hora and rechilus. Other Asifa's took place among the Chasidish and Yiddish speaking crowds where the Rabbonim and Admorim reiterated the takanos they imposed on their respective kehilos. Ironicaly the technology for the live hook up did not go smoothly as the program was readjusted.
