‘Kosher’ search engine is launched


JERUSALEM (JTA) — A new "kosher" Internet search engine omits material not acceptable to rigorously Orthodox Jews.

Koogle, a play on a traditional Jewish good and the major search engine Google, was launched recently, Reuters reported.

The site, in Hebrew with an English mirror site, also links to news and shopping sites that filter out items prohibited by rigorously Orthodox rabbis, including television sets.

Koogle does not operate on Shabbat.
