The YESOD Challenge

Hashem has brought the "Tree of Knowledge" from the Garden of Eden back again. Will we succeed this time?

The YESOD Challenge

Click here to listen to a short audio (4 min), describing the background to this challenge.

It all started in the garden of Eden thousands of years ago, as it says: "And she SAW that the tree was good to eat and that it was DESIRABLE TO THE EYES..." As the final generation before Moshiach, we have been given the tremendous opportunity to fix the original sin.

So what does the YESOD Challenge involve?

Do you have access to non-kosher websites (due to work needs, or other)? Accept upon yourself for a certain period of time, that when it comes to entertainment you will only use religious websites. (If you see it's not too hard, extend your resolution - and enjoy the FREEDOM!)

If you're ready to step up to the plate and accept the challenge, fill out the short form below.

Note: If a blanket-ban on ALL non-religious sites for entertainment is too difficult for you at this stage, we suggest starting with just 1 or 2 sites that you often frequent for entertainment or news (e.g. CNN, Fox, FB or Youtube) which you know are not healthy for you to be on.

(See this page for some common questions people asked about the guidelines of this challenge, as well as some suggestions for alternate sites you can use instead of the non-Kosher ones).

Before Shavuos (in June 2019) approx. 250 (!) people signed up to the challenge. See here for INSPIRING COMMENTS sent in by those who signed up!
