Internet: "Koogle" the "kosher" search engine

Orthodox Jews launched a new "kosher" search engine called "Koogle," according to the site manager Yossi Altman on Sunday.

Altman said Koogle, a play on the names of a Jewish noodle pudding and the ubiquitous Google, appears to meet the standards of Orthodox rabbis, who restrict use of the Web to ensure followers avoid viewing sexually explicit material.

The site, at, omits religiously objectionable material, such as most photographs of women which Orthodox rabbis view as immodest, Altman said.
