According to a survey conducted among 400 religious Zionists, more of them seek answers to shailos with the Google search engine than direct their questions to rabbonim.

In response to the question, “When you have a regular halachic shailah, what do you do first?” 49 percent answered, “I look for an answer on the internet,” while only 34.8 percent said, “I ask my regular rov.”

Among respondents aged 30 and younger, 53 percent said that they have a regular rov to whom they feel comfortable to address their shailos.
