This week's Flatbush Jewish Journal has a lot of coverage on the past week's Asifa.
Much criticism has been leveled at the unleveled and disparate ratio of Yiddish vs. English speakers at the grand CitiField Asifa.
Perhaps this was part of the grand scheme. English speakers have been clamoring for their own Asifa, and sure enough, the front page of this week's FJJannounces the Flatbush Internet Asifa - A Community Gathering Featuring Practical Solutions to Internet Challenges.
Sunday, June 10 at 9:30 AM at the Agudas Yisroel Bais Binyamin - 2913 Avenue L. For Men and Women. All speeches will be in English.
Somebody out there is listening.
As for the Grand Asifa of last week, I think it still produced amazing results. Even though it was long-winded and primarily in a foreign language, it has nationally placed the need for a filter on a higher plateau.
Rav Matisyahu Salomon, Rav Moshe Tuvia Lieff, Rav Avrohom Schorr and Rav Yisroel Reisman will speak.
All speeches will be in English.
Men and Women invtited.
Attendees will receive a Free Technology Awareness guide.
11:00 AM to 1 PM TAG professionals will be available to put internet filters on smart phones.
No mention in the ad of any cost.
Hmm. Seems like this is what the Grand Asifa was supposed to be.
