The technological development of the electronic media and the changes in their role create a process of transition to using alternative modes of communication, which combine mass media and inter-personal communication. These means are alternative to traditional media; they serve segments of the population which do not receive a suitable expression in the institutionalized media, and provide them with information and advertisement which bypass the limitations imposed on the media. The largest alternative activity taking place in Israel is targeted to the orthodox and Haredi (ultra-orthodox) population, mainly through advanced technological means, such as the internet and satellite transmissions. This study explores the ideological dilemma of using advanced communications technology by the religious public, while trying to avoid its cultural hazards and still using it effectively. It examines the characteristics of technology consumption and the use of new media among the religious target group in Israel.
