Chabad takes on hackers

Hasidic Jewish movement launches counter attack on hackers targeting Israeli websites, urges them to learn, respect mitzvahs

Chabad is weighing in on the recent cyber attacks on Israel: One of the cyber war's most recent victims was the Ness Ziona Chabad House website, and the Hasidic movement has decided to meet the digital onslaught head on.


The Chabad house appealed to the hackers with practical advice on better ways to spend their time, suggesting they try a more meaningful endeavor, like learning the Seven Laws of Noah, rather than commit a crime.

The message on the Chabad House website


The Talmud states that the "children of Noah" are all of humankind and any non-Jew who lives according to these laws is regarded as a righteous gentile.


The Seven Laws prohibit idolatry, murder, theft, sexual immorality, blasphemy and eating flesh taken from an animal while it is still alive; and mandate the establishment of courts of law.


The website published a photo of Islamic terror attack casualties and a message in Arabic stating the cyber attack was launched in the name of the Islam war in Israel.
