Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel resort to technology amid lockdown

Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel resort to technology amid lockdown


Israel’s ultra-Orthodox Jews have taken to internet usage, which they have traditionally shunned, amid the Covid-19 lockdown.

The devout religious group has made an online presence as they study, video chat and shop from the comfort of their homes.

Technology and Tel Aviv’s lockdown

Traditionally, rabbis of the ultra-orthodox tradition have condemned the use of the internet. For this reason, using technology so regularly is unheard of. However, desperate times call for desperate measures. With Israel’s cases surging past 14000, they have been left with no other choice but to resort to technology during the lockdown.

One company that is geared only towards the ultra-Orthodox community has offered deals for filtered internet content which will be immediately cancelled after the lockdown is lifted in Israel.

“We see in our survey that ultra-Orthodox will continue to use these tools even after the end of the crisis so we are talking about a deep change that may impact their way of life, expand their connection to the general population and contribute to economic growth,” said the head of the Israel Democracy Institute’s ultra-Orthodox programme, Gilad Malach.

    Sometimes comments got rejected. Some people comment anything by using your website and that gets spammed sometimes. How to save your website from getting in the spam list?
