 Virtual Rabbi of cyberspace In the News

It began in 1969 as a rather frightening Cold War military exercise - a sophisticated communications web designed to survive nuclear warfare. Gradually, as the cold war warmed, the network was increasingly utilized by the scientific, academic, and business communities as well.

In the late 1980s the National Science Foundation took over the administration of the internet, and its capacity to transmit information was dramatically increased. Public awareness of the vast potential the internet has to offer began to grow by leaps and bounds. From 1,000 hosts in 1987, there grew 100,000 in 1989. The internet's 5 million users in 1992 became 30 million in 1994. Experts estimate that by the year 2000 there will be more than a billion users on-line.

The internet is fast becoming one of history's most potent educational tools; and Chabad-Lubavitch in Cyberspace is committed to enriching the internet with the vast and invaluable resources of the Jewish heritage and culture. In the "Age of Information," knowledge is our most precious commodity - knowledge that will facilitate the fulfillment of mankind's highest aspirations.
