Iphones have suffered a major blow in Israel since Rabbi Haim Kanievsky, one of the most respected Rabbis in the ultra-orthodox Jewish community known as Haredi,  has issued a notice  urging for the destruction of Iphones due to his concern related to the quality of the information that people of the Haredi community might access using this or any other kind of smartphones.

To understand this reaction we have to bear in mind that the Haredi community has always tried to somehow isolate from the general media  because they consider that thru it people have access to information that might  “influence their identity”, such as pornography and other contents. They even recommend the use of “kosher phones”, that is, phones that do not have access to the internet or SMS.
