SAFELY NAVIGATING THE DIGITAL WORLD.
Welcome to TAG Boston!
TAG (Technology Awareness Group) Boston is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing the Greater Boston Jewish community with the tools, education and support staff needed for today‘s rapidly-changing technology landscape.
Our FREE services are provided by dedicated trained volunteers. Our mission is to provide our clients with the tools to engage in technology in a deliberate, healthy and responsible manner consistent with their unique Jewish values. TAG volunteers ensure that every person is comfortable with the guidance and service provided. We invite you to join the many people who have taken advantage of TAG’s comprehensive technology services to ensure that they and their families continue to thrive and remain productive in the digital age.
Technology Which You Control
Custom Filter Installation Service
Unlimited connectivity distracts from fully engaging in what matters most in life- Family time, spirituality and meaningful productivity. Device management software customizes your technology to meet your unique needs rather than "one size fits all" technology. It is the first step to ensuring a healthy, deliberate and productive digital lifestyle.
TAG's device management solutions are provided by trained volunteers free of charge! This includes but is not limited to developing a comprehensive technology strategy, software installation and any adjustments to device management categories.
Customization and Education
Dynamic filters can be customized to your personal lifestyle. You choose the categories and apps you want allowed, filtered or blocked. We also provide guidance on choosing which devices work best with filters.
20/6 Live Support
Tech support is available 20 hours a day, 6 days a week!
Reliable Device Management Solutions
No matter your device, our trained technicians will help you choose a secure solution that works for you and your family. Protect your devices so you feel empowered to use them. We are currently offering the Gentech, Techloq and MB Smart filters.

What People are Saying
Knowing that my kids and the adults in our home are protected when they go online gives me so much peace of mind. Rabbi Solomon and the volunteers really worked with me to find the filter that worked the best for our family’s needs and customize it for us.
Getting our devices tagged was the best decision we ever made! Our tech at TAG not only provided us with the right tools for our lifestyle but they were very helpful, friendly and consultative. We feel confident and safe knowing that we are protected and have ongoing support from TAG to help!
As parents, we're pulled in 100 directions at the same time. Having TAG customize our filter on the computer helps us cover gaps in supervision that would be hard to close otherwise. It is relief that our children cannot access content online (accidentally or stealthily) without our approval.
