Kosher Phone Can Be Dialed on Shabbat

The Zomet Institute has unveiled a new telephone which can be dialed on the Sabbath without breaking the Jewish laws of the day of rest. The phone can be dialed without technically connecting thus avoiding Shabbat prohibitions. The Zomet Institute is located in Jerusalem headed by a team of twenty-five rabbis who work with engineers to create Torah friendly solutions for hospitals, the army and other institutions that may need to break Shabbat for emergency reasons.
