As our society engages in (qualitatively and quantitatively) increasing virtual interfacing, it seems wise to reflect on media platforms such as Facebook . This podcast draws on a variety of Torah sources to develop a language with which we can evaluate the Facebook phenomenon, and ask what possibilities and challenges it presents us with as individuals and as a community.
