Israeli telco 'Bezeq' offers up kosher phone lines


In a recent press release, Israeli telecommunications company Bezeq announced that it’s “launching the first ‘kosher’ telephone line in Israel under the name ‘Clean Line’. The new service blocks access to content deemed inappropriate for haredi (strictly observant) Jews.”

Incoming and outgoing calls to numbers labeled as inappropriate by a council of rabbis will be blocked from the service.

According to Bloomberg, this new feature has likely been offered in order to compete with local cable and phone service providers, especially the inappropriately-named “Hot-Cable Systems Media.”
