Effects of Tech

Jewish Resources 

Articles

While phones, computers, texting, email and various forms of social media are part of the fabric of society- it is undeniable that they pose unique challenges to education, child development, friendship, spiritual growth,  and spousal relationships. Each parent, spouse and individual owes it to themselves to become self aware of their practices. 

 

There are several resources for links to lectures and articles that help clarify these challenges. Please use discretion as each given source may not be directed at all audiences.
