Belzer Rebbe: The Internet Has Advantages

The Belzer Rebbe surprised his followers this week when, speaking on Motzei Simchat Torah, he said that he believes that "the Internet has advantages". At the same time he stressed that there are very large drawbacks and as such, the Internet should be filtered.

"On the one hand the Internet has many positive things and on the other hand it has many many shortcomings,” he said. “I want to say that, thank G-d, in Israel we found a company that provides kosher Internet.”
