The Inherent Dangers of Internet

This common-sense warning about the dangers inherent to unbridled Internet in Jewish homes was written in 1996. Everything the author mentioned has only gotten worse.

Rabbi Dovid Heber of Baltimore, who has been a member of GYE's Rabbinical Board since 2010, gave permission that this letter be shared, including with the GYE community.

Rabbi Heber wrote the letter 20 years ago, when Internet use was in its infancy. In the letter, Rabbi Heber describes the dangers of the Internet, which have come to be all too well-known.
