Jerusalem - Mirrer Rosh Yeshiva: If You See Haredi Using Internet Not For 'Parnossa', You Must Rebuke Him
Jerusalem - At a siyum celebrating the conclusion of meseches Kesuvos which was learned in the yeshiva during the winter zman, Mirrer rosh yeshiva Rav Nosson Tzvi Finkel gave a lengthy sicha during which he swiped at those who are connected to the Internet without needing it for their parnossa.
“I am directing my call to you, the bnei Torah,” he said. “You don’t need these services, and you’re not connected to it. But recently there have been breaches which require our attention and action.”
Rav Finkel said that past battles were directed against radios and cellphones, but today’s battle is far worse, with the culprit bringing many homes to ruin, and destroying families both spiritually and physically.
“I’m referring to the Internet,” he said. “Every person has the obligation to protest. When you notice or become aware of someone who has this service in his home and doesn’t need it for parnossa, you are obligated to fulfill the mitzvah of tochacha and rebuke him.”
