Do you know what your children are watching when you aren't at home?
The danger of Internet pornography is certainly one of the greatest threats to the Jewish People today. We are grateful to the Almighty that, in addition to having had the opportunity on this blog to point out the many dangers of Diaspora existence, we were the very first blog to deal with the subject of Internet pornography and the devastating damage it causes individuals and the Jewish nation as a whole.  Also, our website,, led the way in alerting the Jewish public to the importance of “Shmirat HaBrit” and kosher Internet surfing, for every Jewish household.


Now, we are pleased to announce the publication of a comprehensive book on the subject. “The Mouse Made Me Do It!” is a clear, illuminating, and in-depth Torah guide, designed to help people who suffer from an addiction to pornography on the Internet. It is also designed to give people the understanding needed to break free from masturbation and other sexual transgressions, according to the teachings of the Torah and the Kabbalah. The famous “Twelve Step Program” in battling addiction is converted to a dynamic Torah approach to overcoming the powerful temptation of the web. The knowledge presented will allow people to regain control of their lives, break free of negative habits, and direct their energies in healthier, more positive paths by forging an active, joy-filled connection to God. 


Here’s just one of the many letters of recommendation which I received.

Letter of Recommendation from Rabbi Shlomo Aviner:

"Yasher koach! Words of praise are due to the author and Torah scholar, Tzvi Fishman, for his work, “The Mouse Made Me Do It!” With good taste, and in a clear, illuminating, logical, and comprehensive fashion, the book sets forth the dangers of Internet surfing, and offers pathways to escape its addictions. Without doubt, this book will bring a blessing to every reader, young and old, and to every educator and rabbi."

If you are embarrassed that someone may catch you reading it, put a book cover on it, or keep it in a brown paper bag – but read it. If you don’t have a problem, maybe your children do, so it’s a good thing to have it in the house so they can browse through it and discover ways to escape the temptations and pitfalls of Internet surfing. Don’t be naïve. This is a constant challenge for everyone, and the only cure is through knowledge and by forging a renewed connection to G-d.


Happy, healthy, and kosher summer surfing!


Chodesh tov!
