Koogle is kosher

By Simon Round, June 18, 2009

Until now, strictly Orthodox Jews have been reluctant to use the internet search engine, Google, for fear of clicking on something immodest or unkosher.

Now, they do not have to — they can Koogle it instead.
The new Orthodox-friendly search engine — a pun on the haimishe potato bake — filters out religiously objectionable material.
The site manager, Yossi Altman told Reuters: “This is a kosher alternative for ultra-Orthodox Jews so that they may surf the Internet.”

He added that if you try to buy something on Shabbat, “it gets stuck and won’t let you.”
