                                  Answer:
   
   At one time, SCJ and S.C.Israel were once available as mailing lists
   through Shamash. However, they were discontinued by the Shamash staff
   about 10 days before Pesach in 1996. The reason for doing this was the
   disproportionate system load. These two lists had a tiny fraction of
   all Shamash subscribers (perhaps 1% or less) but, because of the huge
   amount of traffic on the newsgroups, took as much as half of all
   mailing-list processing time. Because other mailing lists with content
   specific to Shamash were being delayed by the high load on the system,
   these two lists were removed.
   
   With the growth of web access, and the decline (somewhat) of Usenet,
   there has been less interest in gatewaying News to Mail. However, you
   can get access to the groups via the web. Simply go to one of the
   websites that provide public news access, such as Google Groups
   ([5]http://groups.google.com) or Mailandnews ([6]www.mailandnews.com).
   Note that you may not be able to post through these sites.
