Quote of the Day

I never had a cellphone, nor will I - not a kosher nor a non-kosher one, because only bittul Torah comes from it. I saw a kollel student,who went out of class a few times. I asked him what happened. He said, 'My wife is in her ninth month, I need to know what is happening and if she is about to give birth.' Interesting, but in our time and in our forefathers' time, women gave birth and we studied Torah without interruption and everything was fine.

  -- Chief Rabbi Yitzchak Yosef, when announcing that dayanim and rabbonim should not be using non-kosher cellphones, but should switch to kosher phones. Rav Yosef also said that in kollels they should have a cabinet in which every morning at 9am each avreich deposits his cellphone and doesnt get it back until 1pm, at the end of the morning session.
