Already being on the internet is no argument for spending even more time on it. Please explain your logic.

No matter what the Rebbe said about cable and the radio, neither you nor I know what the Rebbe would say about using the internet more. Absolutely anything is available 24/7 on the internet, and it’s obvious that radio and cable don’t compare to that.

I will add as a final note that there is no such thing as a rocket surgeon.

I have a personal blog and I decided to start a Torah blog as a side project. Not only does it give me more Jewish pride and make me analyze and internalize the concepts I write about, but, since it’s stumbled upon by the most unaffiliated people, it spreads Chassidus to the [often unholy] blogosphere.

love the idea

you have me inspired

it doesnt take a rocket surgeon...
February 18, 2015 10:18 am


anyone who read this post/article is already on the Internet. Boom!

And yes, the Rebbe would say to use the internet more (see the Rebbe’s answer to “should farbrengens be on cable” and “should a Tanya shiur be on the radio”

Stay positive people.

Check out shulchanaruchharav.com and sign up for the daily halacha email. Great stuff!!

Don't forget apps
February 18, 2015 12:36 am

There are tons of $ out there to earn for apps – we should have classes in crownheights on app building. I am sick of putting jewish or even Torah in the search box and getting filth. Missionaries or xtian or even arab apps aiming at innocent jews who don’t understand yiddishkeit. Apps do not need Internet.

Moshiach guide app
February 17, 2015 11:45 pm

Great app available on the App Store called the Moshiach guide app has a short daily lesson in inyonai geula and Moshiach. It’s free and a great way to add a little learning to your day

There are so many good Lubavitch blogs

Like hevria.org

Posting positive content on the internet is the way to combat spiritual darkness!

Sends out a daily two minute clip of the rebbe speaking. This short but powerful whatsapp makes my day!

The Rebbe DID talk about it
February 17, 2015 3:29 pm

From the Rebbe’s talks, Winter 1966 (free translation) Our sages have said: “All that G-d created was created for His honor.” This applies also to all the scientific discoveries of recent years–their purpose is to add honor to G-d by using them for holiness, Torah and mitzvot… There is a special advantage in using radio to teach Torah. Even if a person is not sufficiently motivated to go and attend a class, or even if he only turned on the radio to hear something else–the words of Torah reach him. Furthermore: also in a place where there is no human… Read more »

We also must be VERY careful! There is a difference between flooding the internet with positivity and falling victim to trolls and cyber bullying. If your going to get involved in posting Jewish things online, you are going to be dealing with a special kind of basement dweller born to the internet. They are vicious, they are mean, they are atheists, they hate you for giving your kid a bris, and they won’t wish you any nice things. The internet is an ugly place, if anyone has been looking for their shlichus and has been inspired now to open social… Read more »

follow Hayom Yom Daily
great messages and pics!

February 17, 2015 1:04 pm

I agree with you but also with the artical.
I think we must try to stay off internet.
But at the same time we must pervide קדושה on there for for the people that are stil going to be using it. No matter whats on there…
Also noemw with apps.i dont even need to ‘go on line’ i can go to jewish.tv app and get all on chabad.orgs videos…
Just a thought…

The impression i got is that he’s saying since we have “YouTube channels, twitter accounts” already, and we’re anyways using them to share and spread things, why not utilize them to create more holiness.

B’dieved and not lchatchila

Not So Sure
February 17, 2015 11:16 am

You start the article with a thought that was burning in your mind, and by the time we come to the end, you say that it’s “just what the Rebbe taught us.” Would the Rebbe really tell us to spend more time on the internet? I think of how the Frierdiker Rebbe discusses shtus dekedusha in Basi Legani, and it doesn’t compare to what you’re describing here. Consider also that once something goes online, it usually stays there forever. Who needs their foolishness immortalized online? People are retreating from real life interactions into the impersonal world of the internet, and… Read more »

Thank you # 9
February 17, 2015 11:13 am

I will definitely implement that as well.
But what are we going to do about all of the kids who are bringing their smart phones to school and have easy internet access at the tips of their fingers? This is particularly disturbing to me.
Who will ever address THAT?????

Amazing exciting stories that teach yiras shamayim – my kids love the stories and listen to them and act them out , over and over!! Was put together by Tzivos Hashem and My Shaliach

More Moshiach
February 17, 2015 10:38 am

The best way to increase Moshiach in our lives and to bring him faster is through learning and spreading matters to do with him. Check out this youtube channel where every week a video is posted with the full Dvar Malchus sicha taught in english. https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCV3lCQnuVsgY4gPZ68QdESQ

let's do it!
February 17, 2015 9:04 am

thank you for the motivation!

February 17, 2015 8:58 am

good idea

February 17, 2015 8:40 am

The decline in Yiraie Shamayim of kids and Adults.
Is largely due to the internet.
It goes without saying, a strong Filter must be in place
K9 is free you can set as you need etc.
I just had a talk with my kids.
Stating that our home computer can only be used for Kedusha.

February 17, 2015 5:32 am

Thank you for the push in the right direction. I have taken your words here to heart.
Thank you,

whatsapp N'shei Australia?
February 17, 2015 12:35 am

There’s a wonderful WhatsApp group that I’m on that is used purely for kedusha! Dividing Tehillim, names to daaven for, who is in need of a chessed, inspiring storis, divrei Torah, tznius vertlach, etc. No dirt, no gossip, no complaining, no negativity!

February 17, 2015 12:24 am

I really like this artical!
We must do something!
זה לעומת זה… We can totally add much more קדושה to whats out there…
We can change and put up more torah!!!
Lets go for it!!
I think this artical can get reposted in different places….
Lets do as the rebbe say we can change the world… Lets ise it theקליפת נוגה for קדושה…….
