Fielding Jewish Legal Questions by Text Message

Like many rabbis, Rabbi Shlomo Aviner receives many requests for religious advice. A hundred years ago, Jewish people would put pencil to paper and send off their question to the rabbi and then await a response. At the end of the last century, email inquires became popular.

Rabbi Shlomo Aviner will respond to hundreds of text message inquiries a day.
