Rabbis Meet to Talk Internet Torah Learning


Rabbis and teachers who answer questions on Jewish law (halacha) on the Internet met in Jersualem to discuss their work and the challenges they face. Several dozen male and female Torah teachers took part.

Rabbi Zalman Baruch Melamed warned those answering questions online to take extra care with their words. In addition, he said, they should take care to address what was not explicitly asked by discussing the spiritual and educational aspects of each situation along with the Torah laws that apply.
