Is your Bais Yakkov girl ‘sexting’?

with one comment

There has been a lot of coverage in the mainstream media lately concerning the concept called Sexting.

What is Sexting?

It’s the idea of sending provocative pictures via text on cell phones. The concept is also combined by putting up suggestive pictures of yourself onto facebook, myspace, whimit, etc.

After working in several schools I have seen Jewish Boys and Girls both doing that type of pictures.

And this also applies to adults. There are whole groups online dedicated to sharing nude/suggestive pictures of jewish people online. This trend is accelerating as the internet gets more popular. Honestly it used to be more contained onto Israeli only forums (such as Hyde Park) but it has spread to other sections of the internet.

People; really one needs to realize that with the internet invading our lives even more you need to be more aware of your own boundaries of those of your children.

Well if you are an adult and want to share yourself/your wife online then that is your business but do you want your son and daughter doing the same?

It’s time to start being more responsible about what goes on behind the web browser.

Have a good Shabbas everyone!

  1. It’s really scary. I feel like although I am only a couple of years out of high school, I am light years removed from the challenges the girls face these days.
