I’m in Jerusalem & need to call the rabbi in my old community in America to get some paperwork faxed here to Israel.
I’m having much difficulty trying to locate a phone that I can call the shul from. I found an internet cafe with phones, but they block the numbers, which the shul doesn’t allow blocked numbers.
I’m willing to pay by the minute (assuming that I can get a phone that doesn’t have blocked numbers) & I have an international calling card, but none of the phones work with them.
Can someone please help me? I really need to locate a phone.May 30, 2011 5:26 pm at 5:26 pm #772254chocandpatienceMember
I don’t know about public phones, but I think that if you knock on someone’s door and explain your problem, they most probably will welcome you in.
Also, many Americans have DSL lines with free calls to the USA.May 30, 2011 5:42 pm at 5:42 pm #772255TikkunHatzotMember
Thank you. I might try that when I go daven.
I can’t believe how much time, money & walking I have put into just making this phone call.
It’s really quite amazing as to the immense amount of difficulty just making a phone call has been. It’s almost as funny as it is aggravating. I mean, I never thought that I could stump rabbis such a simple question (“How do I use a public phone?”).May 30, 2011 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #772256AnonymousInactive
