Access to qualified Jewish scholars remains geographically limited -- but Ask utilizes the Internet to provide global access.
Our servers are globally load balanced, and power is assured through a multiple redundant power backup facility.
Ask uses a custom-built, powerful Java based chat engine.
The site has been operational since 1999, and since then our scholars have conducted more than a million live chats, answered hundreds of thousands of e-mails, and written thousands of essays.
Along the way, they have helped people deal with everything from troubled marriages and suicide attempts to finding Shabbat dinners and references for school reports.
Ask is a vibrant, innovative online resource offering anonymous users instant advice from the qualified men and women on our team of expert scholars.
