Do Not EAT Your Cell Phones-They May Not Be Kosher

Gedolei Yisroel Caution Public Not to Use Unapproved Cell Phones
Shema Yisroel Network

Gedolei Yisroel are issuing instructions to stop using cell phones not approved by Vaadas HaRabbonim LeInyonei Tikshoret now that Mirs, Pelephone and Cellcom all provide kosher cellular services—and therefore there is an alternative for everyone.

Vaadas HaRabbonim, which was appointed by gedolei Torah from all streams and backgrounds, has been working to reach a solution to avoid the stumbling-blocks brought about by unapproved cell phones, which are exposed to the spiritually detrimental elements of life far from Torah and mitzvas. The rabbonim worked in cooperation with telecom and computer experts as well as top jurists, including Attorney Yaakov Weinroth.

Six months ago a breakthrough was made when Mirs announced that it was willing to provide kosher cell phones and a block of distinct phone numbers designated for the religious public. After thousands of Jews heeded the calls by their rabbonim to join Mirs, one month ago Pelephone and Cellcom followed suit.

Now approved cell phones are readily available through three large companies, with competition to keep costs low.

In light of the new development, Maran HaRav Eliashiv, the Admor of Gur, HaRav Shmuel Halevy Wosner and HaRav Ovadia Yosef issued an announcement on Tuesday warning against the great danger inherent in cell phones, which have transformed into a tool of destruction for yetzer hora, and instructing those who must use cell phones to use only models approved by Vaadas HaRabbonim.

This important achievement
, which was intended to save Jewish souls both young and old, is being hailed by both educators and parents alike.

Who are these clowns talking to?
KOSHER cell phones are NOT the answer, instill Yiras Shomayim in the kids by setting examples for them to follow, not by mouthing idiotic assinine prohibitions!
Get a life you idiots, this information you are trying to hide is everywhere!

The Rosh Yeshiva of Mir collected cellphones because of bittul Toireh. How many idiots were actually downloading porn via cellphones? Very few.

But, wasting their lives blabbing (unless they were blogging), all.

But, what about Mommy who needs to talk to Yanky and Yitzie? The bachurim who waste time blahblahblahing to each other should learn mussar, and Mommy should let go.

Right on, Rabbi Dr. UOJ.

You have instilled yiras shomayim in us all.

gotta go. You can call me during mincha or maariv, or during the chupah at a chasunah in Lakewood. thanks.

And what, give up the residual money a hechsher on cell phones would provide?

I don't think so! These guys would put hechshers on WATER and WATER FiLTERS if they could get away with it.

Well now I know it isnt the Erev Rav or Amalek that is the cause of our current woes. How many examples must someone like UOJ provide to convince people that that its time to shake Am Israel free of these perushim. Let them keep closing their eyes and banging their faces into walls. This is our Tammany Hall and the Tweeds must be gotten rid of. If they feel so responsible for everyones soul so as to spend vital time with these nonsenseries then let them go to gehinnom for everyone as well.

A person serious about learning will not have any problems with cell phones. He is too busy learning. If a yeshiva guy needs acell phone , he should consider well and hard what he is doing in yeshiva to begin with. A cell phone for a yeshiva guy is only for emergency situations. I saw a "yeshiva guy" the other day in the super market constantly talking on the phone, it was not about Torah or gemmorah. It was about this or that, but not Torah.
I felt sorry for the "kid", that his whole life revolved around foolishness. Now was his opportunity to really "shtig" -develope in learning before worrying about real life of family and parnassah and he is just giving all away for nought. He looked yeshivish, but very far from being a yeshiva Bocher. Maybe
im to harsh on the "kid"?Perhapes he was learning so so hard that he needed a distraction, some needed relaxation. I doubt it.He did not look over worked. I pity him.It seems like the rabbi s are refering to the guys who are not the big learners. I hate to break it to them, take the small learners phone away and he'll find another distraction.If the guy isnot finding happiness in the bais medrash, he will seek it else where.

im not why regular phones werent put under certification, since any phone could be used to call a 1900 number or an escort service!
you can do averios with your vegatables!
Does that mean we will soon require every jew to have a hechsher implanted in their brain!

I heard there is a new kashrus agency being formed with shimush in cell phones.
The head of that agency is going to be the Cellcatcher rebbe,a first cousin to the Putzover rebbe whose daughter married the Shmuckover's son.
These guys will protect our kids from doing aveiras with cell phones.

No self respecting yeshiva bochur looks at forbidden images, it has nothing to do with cell phones.

uoj is right.

When he was (as he continues to be) the star student in the history of his "right wing" yeshiva, he never looked at a cellphone.


case closed.

Exactly making prohibitions is like putting duct tape on something it doesn't root out the problem.

Hi ##NAME##, your blog is excellent. As I was surfing around today looking for detailed info on ##LINK## I somehow ended up on your page. As your described site, ##TITLE## is not exactly related to my search, I am certainly glad I stopped by. Oh well, back to surfing and I am sure I will find what I am looking for, and should you ever need information about prepaid cellular phone service, then stop by for a look. Thanks for the post.
