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.
The Archive of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency includes articles published from 1923 to 2008. Archive stories reflect the journalistic standards and practices of the time they were published.
