For medical and security emergencies. When you tap the panic button, your exact location and emergency type are sent to the command & control center.Read Morearrow_forward
Your panic alert will be received by the command & control center in Israel and the local Chabad emissary in the country in which you’re traveling. Emergencies range from a medical situation (giving birth, heart attack, road accident, etc.) to a terrorist attack or natural disaster.
The app updates users’ latest position every time they move more than 500 meters, encrypts and stores data.Read Morearrow_forward
That way, if contact with travelers is lost, their last position will still be known. The app helps focus, speed up and narrow down search efforts while reducing costs. With just a tap of a button, the command & control center sends a query along with a photo of the missing person to all travelers in the same location, enabling a vital exchange of up-to-date information and fast resolution of the issue.
The moment you sense danger (you are being followed, you have gotten into a suspicious car, etc.) and you have no way of calling for help, tap the SOS button, followed by the Walk With Me button, and then a long tap on the button. While you hold down this button, we are able to track your journey.Read Morearrow_forward
If your phone is snatched from your hands or you let go of the button before your journey is finished, we will receive an automatic panic alert within three seconds. If the danger passes, you can cancel the panic alert within three seconds by tapping Cancel.
In times of terrorist attacks and natural disasters, a query can be sent to all users within a geographic perimeter asking if they need medical assistance, in order to determine the exact location and condition of every traveler.Read Morearrow_forward

My younger sister Rachel got in a serious road accident on October 15, 2016, on the eve of Sukkoth in Johannesburg, South Africa. The driver was killed, and she was critically injured. The team from J-SOS supported us from the very beginning, from personal advice over the phone to flying my sister to Israel. The moment I contacted J-SOS, I felt I had someone I could rely on. My sister came home safe and sound. The confidence and the sense that there are Jewish people on the other end of the world who are looking after us without any personal gain, felt godly (I am not exaggerating). I’m very grateful! Without you, we would probably still be in South Africa.
