YishmorEini monitors internet activity and reports inappropriate use to the user’s accountability partner. The program is completely anonymous; only the Rav knows participants’ identities, and he only receives reports that contain inappropriate activity.
YishmorEini is a community-based program which is led by the Rav of each community, each member is assigned a unique number. Only the Rav is aware of the identity of the person to which the number corresponds to. Every
member installs a software onto their computer which sends biweekly reports to the YishmorEini monitoring team for review. The monitoring team does not know whose reports they are reviewing, since the reports are labeled by number only (no names). If, and only if, there is a report that is problematic, will the report be forwarded to the Rav assigned to that specific number. This way one is assured that when using the internet responsibly, his activity remains completely private. He is also aware that should he ch”v use the internet inappropriately, his Rav will receive his report.
To date, over 25 Rabbanim and communities have partnered with YishmorEini to help their Kehilla use the internet responsibly.
