For a limited time. Any aroni that goes over to zalis side will get a smartphone with unlimited Internet access for two years.

I was wondering if anyone would figure out the pun :-D

Fleishike Kishke

We have to build a fence around smart phones. No more phones of ANY kind. From now on, if you have something to say to somebody, come in and tell it to the gabbai. He'll pass the message along if he thinks it's appropriate.

Samuel Meyer

Anyone has Iphones that work on Verizon, I can use two of them. As this is a way to do what the Rebbe wants, you should not be making money on it, however, I will pay you a $25 convenience fee for each of the phones.

actually, come to think of it, anyone has any smart phone, Microsoft, android or I Phone, please email me Rabbibsa@aol.com and I will take it off your hands and send you a Certificate that certify's you as a true Satmar Chossid, you can hang it in your house. (phones with a value of over $200, I will send you a framed certificate)!

rational man

i think they should offer cash rewards ...similar to the turn in your gun program.....25 maybe 50 dollars per phone...then again perhaps i should do it and resell them on ebay.......and i have a guaranteed way it can be successful.....offer the rebbe a cut of the action

rational man

i vote for dumping the rebbe....

If you dump both your i-phone and your android, do you get to ignore both R. Aharon and R. Zalman?

soso

Well, in fact they are right: What does a mashgiach, kollelnik, etc. need Internet for?

In fact, this is no worse than banning television...

Let him go... there probably is a Rebbe app fro the smart phone anyway.

A quad core smart phone with a siri like interface could probably replace a rebbe anyway.

Brother! =D

Yochanan Lavie

Better a smart phone than a dumb rebbe.

failed

new rebbe...hmmm, nowhere in the family might one find a new rebbe...?

jancsibacsi

The rebbe is counting on his brainless zombies to adhere to his eddicy,the whole of hassidism is is a mockery of of humanities intelligence.

rebitzman

Turning off the italics.

Decisions

Don't rush me! I'm thinking. I'm thinking. Maybe I better text my rebbe.

NeverFrum

"For men, it is permitted towards earning a livelihood, but only with internet filtering."

I don't imagine there will be many of these guys able to use that loophole.

BOB

"The conversation then turned to the women, with the rebbe explaining they too may not have a smartphone under any circumstances. For men, it is permitted towards earning a livelihood, but only with internet filtering."

This would indicate that Reb Aron is apposed to women in the workforce.

Office of the Chief Rabbi

I have a tracfone that's so old not only does it not have Internet, it has a dial.


Back to Brooklyn? Will they give up on Green Acres to keep their cellphones?

Nigritude Ultramarine

This MacArthur Fellow is not impressed. He refuses to own a cellphone of any type. He is also a saint in the Church of Emacs.

Except they would have to give it a male voice. Otherwise they might start dancing with their smart phones.

Hadasah

I guess that I will see more Hasidim using the computers at the Apple Store. :Sigh:

Garnel Ironheart

Rebbe or cell phone. Not a hard choice

David

"Or Get A New Rebbe"

No brainer.

Litvish

Give 'em enough rope and they'll hang themselves.

Good riddance, alle men.

seymour

This is the 21 st century and theese rebbes wants to dictate to his followers to live like it is the 19 th century what a waste of human intellect.

Posted by: jancsibacsi | May 30, 2012 at 03:19 PM

that a step up since they dress like people from 1600s

Bench Kvetcher

Seeee yaaaa!!!!!!!!

Korbendallas72

The iron fist is all he has left. What a sad sack of shit.

torah police

Every single one of the satmar offices worlwide have internet access. Let the rebbes show us by example by getting rid of it themselves. Also he should make a public announcement that satmar will no longer accept any donations from anyone who has internet access. Untill they show us that they are no longer hypocrites no one will listen to these bufoons.

Appalled

New rebbe. For sure

Why is he touching that kid. Shiver

Glitter

Who actually makes a living in that community? *smirks*

I see an "asifa" where people turn their phones in to this guy and he sells them for cash. *suckers*

Moe

A "smart phone" without a data plan is not so smart, would that be permissible?

Jodi

Hareidim feel threatened by anything that has 'smart' in it.

Yaakov

Sarek:

He doesn't mean he would leave, he means the refusenik would be defrocked.

Sarek

Call his bluff. No way would he quit that cushy job where everyone licks his tuchus.

effie

A $9 buck Tracfone has internet access. Are there any phones that do not have internet these days?

mmm

its not the wrong pic. the pic is from Aron Tittelbaum. he did not attend the asifa, so now he has to out-do everyone else. i hope that this campaign ends soon. they are going to far. i might move. people in islamic countries have way more freedom that chasidim

jancsibacsi

This is the 21 st century and theese rebbes wants to dictate to his followers to live like it is the 19 th century what a waste of human intellect.

Rocky

Does that mean that non-compliers will lose their patronage jobs in the community? What do all the fancy titles actually mean?

New Yorker

Picture wasn't a mix up, that is the new Rebbie if U can't comply.

JK2

How is this rule to be enforced?

Or is it considered simply a matter of conscience?

WorkingHaredim

There are exceptions regarding a computer with internet access pertaining to making a living, but only with filtered internet.

*Making a living* them powerful words!

ger

And why exactly are the women not permitted a smartphone (surely some of them earn a living) - what of the ipad?

flat earth

Is he pulling the kid under the table?

Joe

Dump Your Smartphones Or Get A New Rebbe

I'll take the new rebbe

ds

but won't they set them on fire if they leave?

pee brain

wrong pic

joe shmoe

The article is about R' Aron and the pic is from R' Zalmen, what a tragic mixup
