(TECH) Military Rabbinate Presents: Shabbat-Adapted Touch Screen

"New exhibition showcases specially-developed products enabling soldiers to perform duties on Shabbat without desecrating it. 'This work is necessary to integrate religious soldiers in all units,' says Chief Military Rabbi Rafi Peretz.

The Military Rabbinate unveiled a line of electronic devices enabling observant soldiers to perform various duties they are required to do on Shabbat last Tuesday. Among the new developments: Touch screens, light-bulbs, flashlights, water-coolers etc.

The goal of the exhibition was to expose military rabbis to technological solutions which could help soldiers on the field. The Israel Defense Forces will not provide the products to all units and the Military Rabbinate are hoping rabbis would encourage soldiers to purchase the items themselves."
