A friend of mine posted an ad on Facebook which really confused me. Apparently some "gedolim" (yeah, right) decided that most cameras aren't "kosher," because they are capable of...taking videos?
I don't have a clue what that means. My friend suggested--wryly--that these cameras probably don't take pictures of women's faces...
What is 'unkosher' about videos? Is this what Haredi Judaism is coming to? I'm worried that some Ba'alei Teshuva and some gerim might actually believe this.
You can look at it in a very badly Google-translated blog, here. (The original blog is in Hebrew, here.).
