t is no coincidence that Klal Yisrael has gathered asone to unite in facing the challenges of modern tech-nology at precisely this moment. We stand in the finaldays before our annual renewal of

.Our unanimous declaration of

rm their dedication toHashem and His Torah.
roughout our generations of wandering since weentered this long and bitter
golus,
our nation has beenfaced with many trials. Only by standing together andremaining firmly entrenched in the faith of our fathershave we persevered. Yet today we find ourselvesthreatened by a test of frightening magnitude, one thathas already done untold harm to our people. It is an un-seen adversary that jeopardizes our very existence.Once again we are standing at a crossroads, a definingmoment in the history of our nation. Our
Gedolim 
haverisen to the challenge and called upon us, the rank andfile of Klal Yisrael, to join them in taking up the fight. Andon a personal level, this is a defining moment in the livesof each one of us. By joining the a

e dark-ness will cover the land and gloom over the nations, buton you will Hashem shine and His honor will we visibleupon you.” We are at a time when the world is coveredwith darkness, when it eagerly embraces a harmful anddestructive path. Yet Klal Yisrael is prepared to standapart, to buck the trend and fight the current. For this,the
Navi 
promises us, we will earn that our paths be il-luminated by the light of Hashem and we will merit thatHis glory will rest upon us.
To place this evening in its proper perspective,the following critical points must be underscored:
Internet Solutions
It must be made clear before we introduce the varioussolutions that will be o
ered for the internet, such as fil-ters and blocks, that these are not true “solutions.”
eydo not solve the internet problem.
e only real “solution”is to ban all access to the internet. And that, in fact, is whateach of us who can do so must do.A yeshiva
bachur 
, kollel fellow or a
melamed 
Torah, allof whom are not required to have internet for their job,should not own or come in contact with any devices ca-pable of accessing the internet — with or without filters.
ere is no excuse for using the internet where it is notabsolutely necessary.
Internet access must be viewed as a “

e only reason we discuss filters and other solutions al-together is to accommodate businesspeople and the like
