Jewish Electrician

The website Jewish Alliance for Women in Science published an interview with a Jewish electrician. The interview focused on the life of the electrician as a student, until she had her career.

“I work in a field where emergencies can crop up at any time and I need to be available. Before I took my current job I made a point of telling my manager that because I am frum (religious/orthodox) I need to leave earlier on some Fridays. I try not to take advantage of this, and I make up the time by coming in earlier than my usual start time Mon-Fri. As for yomim tovim, I am given the option to do overtime for comparable hours so that is what I usually use. If not, then I have to take off the days as vacation days. I do offer, however, to work on the days that my coworkers would usually want off, Jan 1, Dec 25.”

Finding a Contractor

The website The Jewish Journal meanwhile posted a write-up aiming to guide its readers on how to find the right contractor for the job that they have on hand. The guide is very much applicable for those wanting to hire Jewish electricians.

“While it’s fine to look at Yelp reviews, it’s better to get referrals from people you know. Neighbors who have done home improvements similar to what you need can be excellent resources. If any friends or family members are working right now with a contractor, ask how they like the work and get their contractor’s contact information, even if you don’t need a job done now. One day you may and you’ll have the recommendation handy.”

Take a look at the rest of the advice here.

Finding a Jewish electrician can also be done by asking the contractor himself if he employs a Jewish electrician in his team. If he is employing one, then it will be better to request from the contractor to assign the said electrician to one’s job order.

House Logic has an advice related to this. One of the initial steps they enumerated is to take photographs of the flooded parts of the home.

“Before you remove any water or make any repairs, fully document the damage for your insurer by taking photos or video. Digital versions are best, says Ramirez, because they can be stored electronically and easily copied. If you start removing water or making repairs before you photograph the damage, you could potentially decrease the extent of your coverage, he says.”

“If you are able to stay in your property but need help to prevent further damage, speak to your insurer before arranging emergency repairs, and keep any receipts for work done so you can claim for the cost. Where possible, take photographs to record the damage as this could help with your insurance claim.

If you can’t reach the box without wading into water, call an electrician and stay out of the wet areas. Before removing any water, document the damage for your insurance company.”
