Text messages for Orthodox Jews

A new company will provide a text messaging service that lets people use their cell phones to locate synagogues, kosher restaurants and even prayer times. The company, Linguistic Agents, announced the launch this week of its new service, InfoJew. Information will be available on kosher restaurants, synagogues and mikvahs in major travel destinations in Europe. The times of services, Shabbat and holidays, as well as information on local rabbis, Jewish tourist sites and Chabad houses, will be added eventually.
