And then there was Koogle!
Ultra-Orthodox Jews are very restricted when it comes to surfing the internet in case they happen upon something deemed ‘unsuitable’ by the Rabbis. However, that could all change with Koogle, a kosher search engine in Hebrew designed specifically for Orthodox Jews.
Koogle, a combination of Kugel (Jewish noodle pudding) and Google (rulers of the world), has been developed to filter out unsuitable material, such as sexually explicit items.
The search engine has one more little trick up its sleeve. Because Orthodox Jews are banned from all types of work and business activities on the Jewish Sabbath (Saturday), anyone attempting to search for an item or post a message on this day will cause the system to crash.
