Avotaynu and JewishGen Servers Not Functioning

Avotaynu and JewishGen websites are currently unavailable. The two sites share the same Internet Service Provider which is located in the Houston, Texas area in the path of Hurricane Rita. As a precaution, the hardware is being moved inland to Palestine, Texas (yes, Palestine). Even if the system comes up shortly, there is a risk is will go down again as the hurricane passes due to power failures or communication problems.

If you are in the United States or Canada and wish to place an order with Avotaynu, phone 1-800-AVOTAYNU (800-286-8296).
