Koogle is a new ‘kosher’ Hebrew-language search engine that omits religiously objectionable material. Yossi Altman, an Israeli, developed the tool which has gained approval from Orthodox rabbis. The search engine links to Israeli news and shopping sites but the results are filtered to exclude items deemed unsuitable. “The site was developed in part at the encouragement of rabbis who sought a solution to the needs of ultra-Orthodox Jews to browse the Web particularly for vital services,” he added., Yossi Altman said. Nothing can be posted on Saturdays, the Jewish Sabbath, as Jews are banned from all types of work and business activity. The site could be used to target orthodox Jews living in the Spanish speaking world including in countries such as: Argentina, Venezuela, Panama and the United States.
