WHAT IS THE JEWISH NUMBER?
For hundreds of years Jews have been away from their Judaism because of lack of precise information to know what it means to be a Jew and return to their roots. Nowadays, thanks to the amazing developments it is up to us to know more and return again.The Jewish Number is a non-profit organization based in Los Angeles CA, in the Hancock Park community that was built with the aim to advise, unite and connect Jews all over the world.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?
If you are an Orthodox Jew, enroll to answer calls or call and connect with other Jews if you need religious assistance in other countries. If you are a Jew trying to know more about your Judaism just dial +1-323-310-0622, press the extension of your desire country and we will connect you with a member in the country you chose, use the menu above to find a direct extension number. Have in mind that the answers might be able to speak just in their local language.
HOW MUCH DOES A CALL COST?
Calls made through The Jewish Number are charged as US call. To know your calling rate, call your phone operator and ask them about your particular fee. Call rates depend on your service provider. You will be charged as soon as your call gets through.
WHO WILL ANSWER MY CALL?
Any registered Orthodox Jew of the country that you are calling will answer your call. Since the line is transmitted randomly through a switchboard to any register participant, there is a small chance of talking to the same person twice. The idea is that every time you call, you can talk to a different person in order to hear different points of view.
WHY IS MY CALL NOT GOING THROUGH?
- The call center is under maintenance
- There are many callers at the same time
- You are calling after work hours (see work hours on registration page)
- It is a Jewish holiday. To check the holidays calendar, go to: http://www.hebcal.com/holidays/
WHAT ABOUT MY PRIVACY?
All calls are transmitted through a switchboard that maintains your number and anonymity private. To ensure that the platform is used for its original purpose and for security reasons all calls are being recorded.
