The Lubavitch community of Montreal has come together to solve the problems of modern technology and keep our children safe, under the banner “Let’s solve it, together”.
Rabbi dr. Yosef Shagalow, a world-renowned psychologist and technology expert, was flown from Minnesota to Montreal for two days. He gave an informative and inspirational talk to mothers and fathers at a special event Sunday night at the Beth Rivkah Auditorium.
Rabbi Getzy Markowitz was MC for the evening which started with everyone reciting the Rebbe’s Kapital Tehillim for sholom and safety in Ukraine and around the world. A video of the Rebbe was released. Rabbi Yosef Minkowitzdirector of Beth Rivkah, spoke about the importance of maintaining the purity of our children’s neshomos.
A short video showed the serious concerns resulting from the use of the smartphone. Sir. Gavriel Kaufman from TAG (Technology Awareness Group) presented practical solutions by giving PowerPoint information on various recommended filters and programs.
Rabbi Dr. Shagalow also gave a total of ten workshops, at individual levels, in the five Lubavitch schools sponsoring this important project: Beth Rivkah, Yeshiva, Mesivta Kerem Menachem, Mesivta Ateres Menachem and Seminary Beis Chaya Mushka. The teenage students were so interested and involved that they wanted more time to go on longer.
