SmartConnections is a non-for-profit, grassroots organization that aims to create, enable, and sustain a paradigm shift in our community’s approach to responsible use of technology. Founded under rabbinic guidance by a group of physicians, lawyers, accountants and businessmen from across the Five Towns and Far Rockaway, led by Dr. Akiva Bergman and computer expert Adiel Lejbovitz, it recognizes the ubiquitous nature of technology as well as the challenges that come with it.
The flagship location of the organization is a modern and cool, yet comfortable and inviting office located in Maple Plaza in Cedarhurst, between Central Avenue and Willow Avenue. It is staffed by knowledgeable, friendly technicians who provide practical, consumer-based guidance on means of responsible use of computers, laptops, tablets, gaming devices, and phones. As a local affiliate of the international Technology Awareness Group, the office’s technicians have access to their global resources as well as a broad array of customizable options to match you with the personalized tools and software you need to stay productive and in control. While products offered by third parties often carry a nominal monthly or annual fee, all technical services and consultations are free of charge.
