Kosher phone line to be launched



Phone operator enters negotiations with rabbis on designating special fixed-line service for ultra-Orthodox sector that will block erotic calls
Gil Kalian


Cable, internet and fixed-line provider Hot was recently approached by the rabbis committee for communication affairs and asked to provide the haredi sector in Israel with a 'kosher' phone line service, Israel's leading newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported Thursday.


The proposed fixed-line service will be blocked for erotic calls, a blocking that will be implemented using a "black list" of phone numbers the rabbi committee will provide Hot.


In return, the committee will grant Hot with an official certification that will allow it to operate a phone line for the ultra-Orthodox population.


The rabbis committee on communication affairs was formed by representatives of the different sections of the haredi sector, that have
decided to render kosher the communication services used by the ultra-Orthodox population.


The committee has had one notable success so far, when it got cellular company Partner to launch a mobile phone that will be blocked to any type of cellular content, instant messages and erotic numbers, this after Partner was one of the sternest objectors to the committee's activity.


Cell company Mirs pioneered the kosher mobile phones in Israel, with Cellcom and Pelephone following in its footsteps soon after.



Now how do these Rabbi's know which phone numbers should be blocked????
