Jerusalem Meeting

A major meeting called by rabbonim was just held in Jerusalem to apprise the chashuve oilom that there are fourteen (14) internet cafes ringing the chareidi sections of Jerusalem and hundreds of bochurim are found there nightly. Some are said to walk in with a 'Ktzos' in hand.

There was a call for volunteer mashgichim to stand in front of the entrance to these establishments, thereby inspiring guilt and embarrassment on the part of the bochurim.

Bochrim have no reason to be on internet.

Its so sad to see these rabbonim wringing their hands over someothing that won't go away.

They should focus on the cause of why so many bochurim and girls are chatting on the internet. This cat is out of the bag and will not be put back in.

If they would train mechanchim in yeshivos to teach each child 'lefi darkoy' and understand that some students can not sit and learn gemorah all day long, perhaps these boys would not be so bored and look elsewhere for something interesting to do.

If a boy is not cut out for learning all day, they must be allowed to something kosher like learning a trade. If they won't be allowed to do that, they will find other things to take up their time, like this.

Deerson, please clarify without the sarcasm. I'm not sure what you're trying to say.

i'm not being sarcatic i'm serious.
people generalize and throw out the conventional wisdom which is safe but usually wrong on an individual basis. are internet cafe's worse than bowling lanes. pizza shops are hang out too. where do we draw the line.
