TorahDownloads.org is run by volunteers who share the Rotzon to be Marbitz Torah (the desire to spread Torah). TorahDownloads.org is a project of Torah Tech, Inc. Below is a list of other websites that share our goal to distribute digitized Torah on the internet. We encourage you to visit these sites and browse their vast selection of quality shiurim as well.
It has been proven by time and experience that Internet use is both addictive and spiritually dangerous. We highly recommend a website that has been helpful in giving guidance for internet use, http://guardureyes.com as well as http://webchaver.com. May Hashem lighten our eyes with His Holy Torah.
The following idea is based on a shiur given by Harav Moshe Wolfson on Parshas Vayakheil Pekudei 5773: "Chiddush is a power of Kedusha, holiness. Physically, everything is very much the same. Newness in a material sense is only an external mirage. The goal of the latest invention is the same as the invention of a hundred years ago - to give a person a temporary jolt of pleasure which dissipates quickly. In Kedusha, reality is constantly changing and assuming completely novel dimensions. Although externally it seems as if today's prayer is a repetition of yesterday's, it is a completely new reality all together. The words, though technically the same, have a completely different meaning and shine with a new and exciting Ohr, spiritual light. This is true for every single facet of holiness, be it Torah study, mitzvos, or anything related to Kedusha.
Unfortunately, if we do not tap into the wealth of chiddush that emanates in Kedusha and utilize it to serve Hashem with fresh vigor, the waves of novelty do not dissipate. They are captured by the evil forces and used to produce yet another invention which will further its cause. There are tremendous powers of chiddush today which are not being utilized by Jews in their service of Hashem as seen from the many inventions produced daily which serve to spread immorality. Every time a Jew seeks to gain a new dimension in Avodas Hashem by either learning a new idea which will infuse him with eagerness and freshness or by contemplating the meaning and value of every single act of Kedusha, we prevent the evil forces from gaining access to the power of chiddush and utilizing it for destruction."
